Anderson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dedicated the new Science and Technology Center, along with the Agricultural Science Center and the Central Energy Facility at BYU-Idaho.

In the dedicatory prayers, he blessed the facilities to further testimonies and provide a spirit of light to all who utilize them. He also blessed them to be places of humility and learning.

Before the dedicatory prayer, he read from Doctrine and Covenants Section 64 and told the audience of students and faculty members if they are willing to be obedient, they can eat of the fruit of Zion.

"Just by small and simple things, great things come to pass," he said. "A little bit of encouragement here. A little bit of teaching there, insightful principles here. A little bit more dedicated study by a student. A little more kindness to one another bring about wonderful things."

Open houses for the Science and Technology Center and the Central Energy Facility were held Tuesday afternoon. The open house for the Agricultural Science Center will be in the spring.
