December 8,9,10 Mission Tour with President Amado

On December 8,9, and 10 we were blessed in the Chile Santiago East Mission to have a Mission Tour with President Carlos H. Amado of the First Quorum of the Seventy. We divided the mission into the North, South and Middle sections, and we spent three days being blessed by the Spirit of truth and knowledge. Each day, President Laycock and I had the opportunity to present messages that we felt were important for our Mission, and then President Amado took the remainder of the day to present doctrine in answer to the questions of each missionary. It was a remarkable event for our mission...a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us. We feel the Lord's guiding hand as he sends his chosen leaders to help us to really understand our callings as missionaries in the Lord's Kingdom. Elder Amado was filled with the Spirit. President Laycock and I stand as witnesses of the inspiration that President Amado received while he was working with our missionaries. He would say just exactly what each group of missionaries most needed to hear. He would respond with clarity and conviction as he answered individual missionary's questions, and he would say just exactly what that missionary needed to hear. We testify that President Amado is a representative of Jesus Christ in every way as he leads and guides the affairs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the country of Chile. We are blessed to have him here. We know that the Lord loves His Chilean children, and that through His chosen leaders, He is establishing His church.
