Dieter F. Uchtdorf, pictured here, is Second Counselor in the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He, along with the church's President Thomas S. Monson and First Counselor Henry D. Eyring, along with the current Twelve Apostles make up the governing leadership of the church. Like the twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ during His ministery on earth, these good and righteous men were also called by Priesthood authority and ordained to those high and holy callings by the power of God and by the laying on of hands and are revered and sustained by the fourteen million members of the church world-wide. Talks by these, and other Prophets of decades past can be found by logging onto the Church web site at
http://www.lds.org/. Find Gospel Library and click on General Conference. You can then select the language that you would like to hear or read the talk in. It is also recorded as a video for those wishing to see the person speaking. After selecting the language you desire it will then make available for you to access General Conference talks by year, topic and the name of the General Authority speaking. I testify that God's words and desires are voiced through these modern-day Prophets today as they were 2000 years ago through the original Disciples of Christ. We know from ancient and modern-day Prophets of our life before our birth, why we came to earth and our eternal life after this mortal existence and that knowledge and assurance is available to you too.

President and Sister Uchtdorf, in two seperate missionary conferences, met with, taught and counseled approximately 300 missionaries in the Taichung and Taipei, Taiwan Missions. Sunday evening they brought a wonderful spirit to a special members' conference in the sports arena in Taipei attended by over 6,000 faithful Taiwan church members and friends who were inspired by the messages shared and the beautiful uplifting music provided by a choir of about 300, accompanied by violins.

Sister Greene and I had the wonderful opportunity of talking with and experiencing the kind and loving spirit of a Prophet of God and we testify that he is in fact one of God's Prophets on earth today.
