7.0 Chile Earthquake on February 11, 2011

Many of you have heard by now that a 7.0 earthquake occurred today in the Southern Region of Chile near Concepcion and Bio Bio. All missionaries in the Chile, Santiago East Mission are accounted for, well and doing fine. We felt the earthquake and its "replica" (aftershock) in Santiago, but we did not experience any injury or damage in our mission. Thank you, as always, for your love, prayers, and concern. "If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear" (D & C 38:30). We (President and Sister Laycock) just completed our inspection of every apartment in our mission. We checked on the 36 hour kits, and reminded each Elder and Sister to keep their bags ready and be prepared. We have wonderful Missionaries. They are obedient. They know how important it is for them to be prepared in every way. We are grateful for the life-lessons we are all learning as we serve the Lord as His full time missionaries.
