I've sees the promises to the Lamanites fulfilled miraculously in South America. There are many wonderful people there, very dedicated to our Savior, Jesus Christ, and His gospel.

As the evil influences of the world increase, so do the good. These are very troubling times we in which we live. The people of South America have to deal with poverty, drug activities, and governmental unrest in some places. Their humility is legendary. They have fewer rights that we do in general. But yet, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, they endure, and do it well. In Argentina, there are now multigenerational families whose grandfathers and grandmothers joined the church. "A marvelous work and a wonder."

I believe we could learn from their zeal and humility.

Having served a mission in Argentina in 1961-1963, I lovingly remember the many wonderful Saints who so humbly worked toward the day when they would have their own temple. From Trelew to Rosario, Mar del Plata to San Fernando, the work was the same: gather in all who will believe, search out the youth who will be the future leaders of this country, strengthen the families. Yes, these are chosen and cherished sons and daughters of God and richly deserve the Apostolic Blessings.

I served in the Argentina Cordoba Mission from 1976-1978 under the leadership of President Omar Righi who was from Rosario. Like silvercloud41NE, I have fond memories of the members who accepted the gospel and their deep commitment to the Church. My mission is now three. The branches I served in are now stakes. Two young me from my stake will be serving in two of those missions in the next several months. There lives will be blessed by their service as mine has been.
