LDS Church Issues Statement on Mexico Earthquake in English & Spanish

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The Church issued the following statement in English and Spanish on the Mexico earthquake, which occurred Thursday, September 7, 2017. The death toll has risen to 90 and thousands more are now homeless.

With the rest of the world, we are deeply concerned about the many natural disasters that have occurred around the globe in recent weeks. Last night’s earthquake in Mexico affected thousands of people, and we pray for their safety and well-being. Two missions of the Church were directly impacted (the Mexico Tuxtla Gutierrez and Mexico Oaxaca Missions), and the quake was felt throughout a much larger region. We have confirmed that all missionaries are safe and well. The condition of other Church facilities and the earthquake’s impact to other members are unknown at this time. We will provide additional information as it becomes available.


Al igual que el resto del mundo, estamos profundamente preocupados por los numerosos desastres naturales que han ocurrido a través del mundo en las últimas semanas. El terremoto ocurrido anoche en México afectó a miles de personas, y oramos por su seguridad y bienestar. Dos misiones de la Iglesia se han visto directamente impactadas (la misión de México Tuxtla Gutiérrez y la misión de México Oaxaca) y el terremoto se hizo sentir a través de una región mucho más grande. Hemos confirmado que todos los misioneros se encuentran seguros y en buen estado. La condición de otras instalaciones de la Iglesia y el impacto del terremoto en otros miembros aún no se conocen en este momento. Proporcionaremos información adicional en cuando esté disponible.
