The world has a new Prophet


The Church released this statment just minutes ago:


"Thomas S. Monson is the new president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it was announced today at a news conference in the Church Office Building. President Monson, 80, succeeds President Gordon B. Hinckley, who died 27 January.
The new world leader of the Church has called to serve with him in the First Presidency, the top governing body of the 13-million-member faith, President Henry B. Eyring, 74, first counselor, and President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, 67, second counselor.
President Boyd K. Packer, 83, is the new president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. The vacancy in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be filled later. "
`

I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. He will lead the Church and carry on in the work that President Hinckley left for all of us to do. There will always be a soft spot in my heart for Gordon B. Hinckley. He truly was one of the "Noble and Great Ones" and what a blessing to have him lead the Church all these past years. But I know Thomas S. Monson will also move the work forward boldly and noblely. I know the work of the Lord will continue as we prepare for the second coming of our Lord and Savior. The Church is true, God Lives, and we are his children.

It was interesting hearing him talk today. I have heard his voice 100's of times, but today it was the President of the Church: that made it distinct from every other time I have heard him. We will all miss President Hinckley, but I am also excited for President Monson's new chapter in the Church.
