I feel so blessed to type these words, “I sustain President Nelson.” I feel blessed to have seen him speak in person before he was called to his present position. I remember thinking that he was so “young” in spirit and in intelligence for his chronological age. I was touched greatly by his talks in recent years since I have come to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
After the announcement of President Nelson’s new position and those of his counselors, I was so happy. Happy for a car that didn’t run and the ability to hear President Nelsons words on September 11, 2016 from his own mouth. I remember the many feelings I experienced when I listened to his words as well as some of the words themselves. It does help that I took notes during his talk.
I have been surprised how “with it” this 93-year-old President is. He tweets, has been on computers since they came out and has been a groundbreaking heart surgeon. The fact that he has made medical history with his own medical practice makes me incredibly hopeful on a personal nature. His compassion for others is seemingly boundless.
As a newly-called Temple and Family History Consultant, I am EXTREMELY excited about a prophet who has spoken about The Spirit of Elijah for years! President Nelson has encouraged the members of The Church to work on their family history for most of his time in the Quorum of the Twelve. I don’t imagine he will slow down in regards to that effort now!
I believe that Heavenly Father qualified President Russel M. Nelson throughout his 93 years for this position. I’m grateful for the years of preparation President Nelson has put into this calling. I believe that President Nelson is the representative of Jesus Christ’s Church on this earth. I am happy to be able to sustain our Prophet. I feel so blessed to say, “I sustain President Russel M. Nelson and the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”
I leave this Testimony with you in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
