President Eyring was attending our ward today and at the end of the testimony meeting, as the first counselor in our bishopric was about to stand and close the meeting, President Eyring leaned over to him and apparently asked for the opportunity to bear his testimony. President Eyring stood and bore his testimony regarding President Monson as the prophet in our day and also his testimony regarding the mission of the Savior.
Besides being a bit distracted by a couple of fidgety children I was so grateful for the opportunity to listen to the testimony of a special witness of Christ. I was reminded that one of our great blessings in the church is the knowledge of where such testimony can be found. His testimony also provided a very convenient reference in my Sunday school class as we talked about the fact that all the prophets and apostles since Joseph Smith have consistently shared their witness of Christ and His mission.
