First Presidency Announced

A very good press conference this morning:

Thomas S. Monson is the new President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with Henry B. Eyring as First Counselor and Dieter F. Uchtdorf as Second Counselor.

I’m anxious to see what they will bring. I think that Elder Uchtdorf was a good choice that will help bring the Church forward with the growing international membership.

See the LDS Newsroom for more information as it becomes available.

I think the weather has been very interesting to match the news. We had the rain yesterday when they were in the Temple in Salt Lake City to sustain and ordain President Monson and now today, at least here in Southern California, it is beautiful. We have mostly clear sunny skies and I hear we got a good amount of snow overnight which will help sustain life throughout the year.
