Congratulations. If I can be called a judge, I deem you the winner of the "Elder Christofferson is the newest apostle" sweepstakes!

Here's an article that gives a quick profile and some quotes from Elder Christofferson. It sounds like he's a thoughtful and respectful person. He'll probably be a good apostle.
