A new apostle has been called: Quentin L. Cook

Of course, Henry B. Eyring has been called to be second counselor in the First Presidency. It's amazing to think how the Lord has organized His church. Without any fanfare or debating or arguing or politicking, the leadership of His church has been reorganized. What a testament to the inspired process - the Lord's hand is over this work.

The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done.
- Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 4:540
