Sustaining President Monson
President Thomas S. Monson
In our Priesthood leadership meeting the other night President Schmitt, Stake President, went over the solemn assembly, he also mentioned that about half of the membership of the church currently can not remember any other prophet beside President Hinckley.
To this he had us turn to (Joshua 3:7) "And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee."
This is where the children of Israel are going into the promised land and Moses doesn't go with them. Just as we sustained President Hinckley, we shall sustain President Monson, he is the Lord's mouth piece here upon the earth.
On a personal note, I have a great respect for President Monson, thanks to one of his magnificent talks in conference back in 1999 on Priesthood Power, I went on a mission and am now converted to the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I wish you could tell how excited I am to have this great man follow after President Hinckley.
