Honoring President Monson and Looking Forward

This week, the world lost a great disciple of Jesus Christ, Thomas S. Monson. We express our heartfelt condolences to his family. While we are saddened by the passing of our beloved prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we rejoice in his legacy of service and compassion. Pres. Monson lived what he taught – “‘Love thy neighbor’ is more than a divine truth. It is a pattern for perfection.” During his more than 70 years of church service, he dedicated much time, looking after the widows and needy. In spite of his heavy load, he was never too busy to share a kind word or do a kind deed. We would all do well to follow his Christlike example.

Pres. Monson’s successor will be formally announced in the weeks ahead. We will support and sustain our new Prophet and President in moving the Lord’s work forward, while striving to honor Pres. Monson’s legacy of love and generosity.
