Elder Utchdorf, you have been an amazing influence in my life through your dedicated service. Each time you address the members of the church you bring inspiration, direction, and hope. I want to be a better latter-day saint as a result. I look forward to the influence you will continue to provide in your assignments. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
I met Elder Uchtdorf on many occasions, including when he was an Area Seventy in Western Europe, more than 20 years ago. What always impressed me with him most, and what impresses me with so many of our General Authorities, especially our regretted President Monson, was his ability to smile, be warm and positive under all circumstances, no matter the heavy burdens they carry on their shoulders, including aging bodies. And some of the LDS people who marked my life most, such as Stephen R. Covey or Truman G. Madsen, have never been General Authorities, except maybe Area Seventies, but this did not keep them from influencing hundreds of thousands for good through their speeches and writings. I remain assured that this is what we will continue experiencing for a good many years with Elder Uchtdorf, no matter the nature of his new assignments.
As member of this our lords church,I am so grateful to you as counsellor to our last prophet ,pres monson.,thankyou for the service you gave to us all.love from all of the British saints,we will miss you and look forward to hearing you speak in conference,I love the gospel with all my heart and I know that Joseph smith was a true prophet of our heavenly father.we now sustain pres nelson as our prophet .
Thank you Elder Utchdorf for your years of service! You are a pillar of faith and love. I know you are right where the Lord has need of your service. It saddens me when the world try’s to injure our leaders. Again we love you and all of our Brethern who carry such a heavy mantle of responsibilities.
