As more and more members of the LDS faith live in southern South America,
concern for these families prompts LDS leaders to teach and strengthen them, to
teach and build leadership among them.
It is good that these leaders know about the Church through contact from their
own citizens. It is needed for the work to go forward in every nation of the
world. Families are important and solidify relationships and convictions. Good
to also have leaders to accompany the Apostles and the Seventy leaders
As more and more tithe payers are now in Latin America, it only makes sense for
the LDS leaders to spend more face time there.
