Good question.
Elder Boyd K.
Packer related
the following :
 
     
  The question [ I am occasionally asked ] is, “ Have you seen Him? ” That is a question that
I have never asked of another . . . There are some things just too sacred to discuss . . .
I have heard [ others ] answer it—but not when they were asked. They have answered it
under the prompting of the Spirit, on sacred occasions, when “ the Spirit beareth re-cord. ”
I have heard one of my brethren declare : “ I know from experiences, too sacred to relate,
that Jesus is the Christ. ” I have heard another testify : “ I know that God lives ; I know
that the Lord lives. And more than that, I know the Lord.
( Ensign, June 1971, p. 87 )
 
  There are also several documents that suggest
modern Church leaders have been in the presence
of Christ as part of their calling as an Apostle.
 
  Just like the ancient
Apostles in My pages.
 
     
  . . . and the Twelve shall be My disciples, and they shall take upon them My name . . . with full purpose of heart. They are called to go into all the world to preach My gospel unto every creature. And they are . . . ordained of Me . . . to declare My gospel, according to the callings and gifts of God unto men. And I, Jesus Christ, your Lord and Your God, have spoken it. These words are not of men . . . but of Me ; wherefore you shall testify they are of Me and not of man. For it is My voice which speaketh them unto you. Wherefore, you can testify that you have heard My voice, and know My words. (D & C 18 : 26-36)
