SALT LAKE CITY — The LDS Church continues to assess the status of its members, missionaries and facilities in central Mexico after Tuesday afternoon’s 7.1-magnitude earthquake in Puebla, about 100 miles from that nation’s capital.
“There are several missions in this region, and mission presidents are working to determine the status of all missionaries.
“Mission presidents will keep families updated as they are able, and we will provide additional details as we learn more,” Hawkins said.
Meanwhile, the Mexico Missionary Training Center reported on its Facebook page that all missionaries there were safe following the quake.
Tuesday’s quake came on the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City that resulted in some 10,000 deaths.
Both the church’s statement Tuesday and the MTC’s Facebook post were accompanied by Spanish-translated versions.
Hay varias misiones en esta región, y los presidentes de misión están trabajando para determinar el estado de todos los misioneros.
And the Mexico City MTC’s message in Spanish:
“Todos bien aquí en el CCM de México.
Mexico City MTC, Mexico City MTC Facebook page
Missionaries at the Mexico Missionary Training Center in Mexico City gather outside away from buildings — and some kneel in prayer — following Tuesday afternoon’s 7.1-magnitude earthquake.
