This is great news! I was a missionary in Chile between 1968-70 when the entire
country was only one mission. To see the incredible growth of the church in that
country and all of Latin America in the last 50 years is truly amazing and a
testimony to the prophetic words of the Prophet Joseph Smith on the day the
church was reorganized in 1830, that the restored Church of Jesus Christ would
fill both North and South America and the entire world.
mightymite...not sure why you say odd,,,there are 4 million members in South
America that will get a visit from the prophet and an apostle plus a temple
dedication...Personally I think it is wonderful
Wow. That sounds exhausting. President Nelson has an amazing amount of energy.
@MightymiteSouth America contains 1/4 of the Church's members, that
seems like a pretty reasonable motivation for visiting the area, particularly
with the new temple being dedicated as part of the visit.
Interesting ... Motivations on this are kinda odd. Head scratcher on the future
if the church in general these days.
President Nelson is a remarkable man. But even better, he is the Lord's
prophet and he is going to the people... Kudos also to Wendy Nelson and Elder
and Sister Stevenson for helping in this ministry. The Lord is truly hastening
