I served in Colombia and recently returned from the same mission as Elder Encarnacion (the Elder who was killed.)
I am so sad for the violence that still continues. I pray that the missionaries will be protected and that they will be allowed to stay in the beautiful country and serve those people.

Just so you know, a lot of people are hit everyday by stray bullets in Colombia. Especially in Cali.

Sad news for the family... Elder Encarnacion was doing the dishes when the stray bullet hit him! (fight across the street by gain members) tragedy's like this happen all around the world...EVEN in the U.S. President Prince had a very sacred experience where Elder Encarnacion was telling him that every thing was ok President Prince also shared this scripture D&C 138:57 "I beheld that the faithful elders of this dispensation, when they depart from mortal life, continue their labors in the preaching of the gospel of repentance and redemption, through the sacrifice of the Only Begotten Son of God, among those who are in darkness and under the bondage of sin in the great world of the spirits of the dead."
