April 5 & 6, 20089:00 & 1:00 each dayPARENTS: These packets will hopefully enable you to listen to the messages ofGeneral Conference and encourage your children to watch Conference with you.We hope that the booklets will bless your families, especially on the Sabbath.You are about to be part of a unique General Conference that you have never seenandhas only happened 15 times in Church History. You will be sustaining a newProphet!What happens when the Prophet dies? When a prophet passes away, the FirstPresidency goes back into the order they were called into the Quorum of theTwelve.The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles becomes the presiding body of the Church. . .,
 untila new president of the Church is chosen and ordained (www.lds.org). All the
Priesthood keys are still on the Earth. As we believe that a man must be called
 of God,by prophecy, and by the laying on of hands by those who are in authority (5th
 Articleof Faith), a special meeting is called where the Quorum of the Twelve meet in theTemple and pray about who the next Prophet should be. The pattern was set long agoby the Lord, that the President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles (the seniorapostle) becomes the next Prophet. The Quorum sets him apart and gives him all thePriesthood keys. At the following General Conference, we, as members of The Churchof Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, get to sustain the President of the Church
 asprophet, seer, and revelatorthe only person on the earth who receives revelation
 toguide the entire Church (www.lds.org). The Holy Ghost will help you gain a
 testimonyof our new prophet and you will know that he is his called of God. We encourageyou tolisten to and follow our new prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. He will not leadyouastray.
