As most of you know, there has been a very powerful earthquake in Southern Chile. It was located north of our mission in the Concepecion area. Unfortunately, they have suffered extensive damage and our prayers are with them.
Susie and I are in Punta Arenas and obviously we did not feel the earthquake. All flights are canceled so we don`t know how long it will be before we can get back to Osorno. We are unable to reach our missionaries because cell and phone service is limited or non-existent. We have however been able to talk to our zone leaders in Valdivia and while they felt the earthquake, they do not believe there is any local damage.
As of now, we believe that all of our missionaries are fine and that there has been no measurable damage in our mission. We are trying to contact each missionary and for now are communicating through Valdivia.
Please keep the Concepcion y Concepcion South missions in your prayers.
