If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear.

Coincidence? The missionaries consider it a miracle.

There was a earthquake drill in Mexico, an annual tradition on September 19, as cities across Mexico stage emergency disaster simulations and evacuations.

“We can see the Lord’s hand protecting our missionaries. We had a practice earthquake drill this morning and during lunch a real earthquake hit. Here are photos of the missionaries gathered safely outside after the earthquake. Many knelt to pray for those who were impacted by this quake.”
