Well, it's that time again.   Post your predictions for any news, announcements, or policy adjustments for this upcoming General Conference. 

After Conference, if anything you predicted came to pass, you can come back here and brag! :)

More of the same: inspirational, uplifting, etc.

Do more missionary work online

For men: repent. For women: You are Enough. 

Slow down, prioritize the prize of eternal life

Don't be racist. 

Obey the laws of the land while engaging civilly in the dialogue

Fight wars for your government but don't think your country is superior to any other, despite the D&C stating the Constitution was inspired.

Hoping for:

1. Polygamy to be allowed for investigators who are currently practicing it in countries where it is legal

2. polygamy being reinstituted in countries where it is legal. The argument that the world population is a big enough number and therefore polygamy isn't needed seems to me to ignore the fact that God wants eternal families.  Isn't that on the missionaries and member missionaries? Not really. I'm sure good people practice polygamy and wouldn't end that practice to join a family-oriented Church. 

3. Temple on Fremont Island, UT and in Ireland and on a Church-owned ship

4. The value of obeying the laws of God and the laws of the land despite how corrupt public policy and politicians of both parties truly are

5. Church HQ to be made sovereign like the Holy See, Catholic Church HQ, thus granting the separation of church and state advocates what they truly want.

Prediction 1: I will feel God's assurance that while he is generally pleased with my conduct and commitment to do his will that there is still some room for improvement.  Again.

Prediction 2: I will get some more suggestions from him about how I can do better which may or may not agree with some suggestions I have received from some other people who have also noticed that I still am not perfect, yet.

Prediction 3: Other people who pay attention to what some of the speakers say during their conference discourses will also get some suggestions for improvements, too, which they may or may not have heard before.

At least one talk on racism, some mentions of the pandemic with at least one admonition to defer to local professionals and asking people to comply with the Church’s (generally more stringent) restrictions, President Nelson might tell people to get vaccines, one talk about depression and/or mental health, and a special guest appearance by Enoch explaining how to become a Zion people from the guy who succeeded.

Probably.

President Nelson might tell people to get vaccines,

It's a modern day Isaac Barlow and the buggy whip if he does.

I don't think we'd do what he said even if he did appear.  I mean, that is what they tried to do in 1800's Utah and look how well we held onto that.

Why do you say that?  Barlow had no clue why he needed to buy a buggy whip. It is obvious the reason to get vaccines.

According to one account he was fundamentally opposed to whipping his teams.  That's why he didn't have a whip to begin with.  So buying one when the prophet recommended it was a matter of trust and faith.

We have many members who are fundamentally opposed to vaccines.  If the prophet recommends they get them the circumstances may be similar.

I don’t know if it will be this conference, but I suspect we’ll eventually see an organization that is analogous to the Seventy for the Sisters. The Church recently announced the creation of positions analogous to Area Seventies for the sisters, and I think it is a very positive move.

FWIW, I think President Nelson has been trying to move us closer to the position envisioned by Joseph Smith for the Relief Society. I’m not sure we’re there yet, and I think that might say more about us than him, but I think we’re moving there...........................

Very perceptive.  Smartest thing I've heard in awhile.  Powerful too.  @Fair Dinkum take note.

Maybe Sister Nelson might be helping the matter as well.

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, gets a temple announced.

That has been my hope for several years now. As it is now, they would have to (pre covid of course) but they would have to travel to Hong Kong to attend the temple and with the Beijing Temple, I doubt they would be allowed to attend there.

Temple on Fremont Island, UT

Fremont Island is owned by the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, & State Lands with a conservation easement held by the Nature Conservancy. I can't imagine any reason why the church would want to build a temple there.

Are you calling her the still small voice President Nelson hears?

She's the woman behind the man, what she can't be an influence?

Fremont Island is owned

I represented a client who leased part of that island from it's 3 private owners.

The Lord might want a Temple there so people driving on the freeway could see Temples on the right and left-hand side. 

I'm totally fine w/ limited approval of legal polygamy becoming acceptable as well, if that's more palatable

I don't think we're quite there yet in the US.
Utah just barely removed the felony penalty.
In the rest of the world who knows.

Ezra Taft Benson will be resurrected and thunder from the pulpit the EVILS of galloping socialism.

Followed by a sermon on capitalism taken from Timothy.

And then concluded with President Nelson re-establishing the United Order and full consecration.  So that we can have no poor among us and have all things in common.

A few thoughts on predictions:

1) There have been quite a few people leaving the church.  About 50% of Active Millennials are leaving.  I suspect more talks about staying in the boat and only studying from church approved resources.

2) Elder Bednar recently gave a talk on miracles, which turned out to be a few ordinary, everyday happenings during Covid.  Perhaps  there will be more talks on all of these miracles happening during Covid.

3) Probably one talk on how the fast for the Covid pandemic to be stopped, which did not work, will be turned into something else like how the fast helped to develop a vaccine instead.  God works in mysterious ways.
