Coming to his Rescue

See the source image

While on a street car, which future Apostle stated the Lord came to his rescue?
a.                  L. Tom Perry
b.                  George Albert Smith
c.                   J. Golden Kimball
d.                  Heber C. Kimball
Yesterday’s answer:
C   He would be a member of the Quorum of the Twelve
On 3 October 1934, Alonzo A. Hinckley was called to be a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. At this time he took from his private papers his patriarchal blessing, which he shared with his family: “Your spirit is a noble spirit of the House of Abraham, and Prince of the Tribe of Ephraim. If you continue faithful in this calling, wherein you are called to labor, you will . . . be numbered with the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.” This prophetic blessing, given thirty-one years earlier, was pronounced on Elder Hinckley shortly after his call as president to the Millard Stake, a position he held for twenty-seven years. He had never told anyone of this promise—only the patriarch and the scribe knew of Brother Hinckley’s great destiny.
