I'm very excited about the new General Authority, Elder Joseph W. Sitati of Nairobi, Kenya, who was just called as a General Authority of the Church to the First Quorum of the Seventy. Yes, it's wonderful to have someone from Africa among the leaders of the Church, and lots of people are cheering about that. But a big part of this story has been neglected by the press and many bloggers. Elder Sitati is an engineer. He has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Nairobi. Now that's totally cool!
