The Church says this: “Because the May Liahona and Ensign contain a report of the April 2012 general conference, there is not a specifically designated First Presidency Message or Visiting Teaching Message for May. Home and visiting teachers are encouraged to prayerfully select their message from the addresses given during general conference.”

Visit the general conference website to read, watch, or listen to conference addresses.

They make it really easy for us to find and search and find the conference talks which will best help the sisters we visit teach:
