What an incredible thing! President Gordon B. Hinckley passed away this evening. I bear my witness with others throughout the world that he truly is a prophet of God.
"It is no small thing, my brothers and sisters,
to have a prophet of God in our midst.
Great and wonderful are the blessings
that come into our lives
as we listen to the word of the Lord
given to us through him."
M. Russell Ballard,
President Gordon B. Hinckley
"Of these things I give solemn testimony, bearing witness that God has spoken again to open this final glorious dispensation; that His Church is here, the church which carries the name of His Beloved Son; that there has come from the earth the record of an ancient people, bearing witness to this generation of the work of the Almighty; that the everlasting priesthood is among men for their blessing and the governance of His work; that we are members of the true and living Church of Jesus Christ, brought forth for the blessing of all who will receive its message; that it is immovably established on a foundation of apostles and prophets, with cornerstones of unshakable firmness put in place by Him for the accomplishment of His eternal purposes, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone."
