“Last year, when President Monson reached the milestone of five years of service as President of the Church, he reflected on his 50 years of apostolic service and made this statement: … ‘I assure you that the Church is in good hands. The system set up for the Council of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve [Apostles] assures [us] that it will always be in good hands and that, come what may, there is no need to worry or to fear. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, whom we follow, whom we worship, and whom we serve, is ever at the helm.’1
“President Monson, we thank you for those truths! And we thank you for your lifetime of exemplary and dedicated service. … We sustain you, not only with uplifted hands but with all our hearts and consecrated efforts.”
Elder Russell M. Nelson, “Sustaining the Prophets,” Ensign, Nov. 2014, 76.
