Elder Henry B. Eyring of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles was called and sustained as the new 2nd Counselor in the First Presidency of the LDS Church.
Elder Quentin L. Cook of the 1st Quorum of the Seventy was called as an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ and was sustained as a member of the Quorum of the 12 Apostles. Elder Cook was called as a member of the 1st Quorum of the Seventy on April 5, 1998. He was born in Logan, UT and served an LDS Mission to England.
The calling of Elder Eyring to serve with President Hinckley and President Monson as presiding officers of the Church is fantastic and somewhat surprising to me. Surprising because he is one of the younger and junior Apostles (I believe, until today, that he was 3rd from the bottom in Seniority). Seniority has nothing to do with this calling, but for some reason I would have expected one more senior. Nevertheless, Elder Eyring has long been one of my favorite Apostles to listen to and receive instruction from. His call was one of direct revelation from God, what a blessing it is to have a Church on the earth with such authority and with the same organization that existed when Christ was on the Earth.
