The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have confirmed Thursday afternoon that the 90 year old prophet will not attend the 187th General Conference due to his current condition. The church pointed back the May 23 statement about President’s Monson condition:

​Because of limitations incident to his age, President Monson is no longer attending meetings at the church offices on a regular basis,” reads the May 23 statement. “He communicates and confers with his counselors on matters as needed. President Monson is grateful that the work of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles continues without interruption. He appreciates the prayers and support of church members.
