In our office meeting this morning we were told who would replace Elder Griffin as the new Assistant. Someone mentioned how happy Sister Lauper would be, so President Hansen asked if we'd like to know how he was chosen. Yes. Of course!
Pres. Hansen said he was praying before MLC that he would know if one of the Zone Leaders was the right Elder for the position. As the meeting proceeded and the missionaries were reading, Pres. Hansen looked from one Elder to the next, waiting to feel something. One by one he looked and waited but felt nothing. Then he listened to Elder New Assistant and he knew right away who he should call. He said the feeling he had was "off the chart!" But he continued on around the room and experienced the same lack of feeling as before. So Elder New Assistant will be announced on Wednesday at the Transfer Meeting.
