Primary children around the world will look to Sister Joy D. Jones as the new Primary General President; Sister Jean B. Bringham, first counselor; and Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, second counselor.

The prior Primary presidency included President Rosemary M. Wixom and her two counselors, Sister Cheryl A. Esplin and Sister Mary R. Durham, all who were released Saturday.

While the Primary presidency serves under the direction of the First Presidency, they oversee gospel teachings and instruction of children ages 18 months to 11 years.

Sister Durham spoke in the Saturday Morning session of the conference.
