Chile: Pres. Packer broadcast unites leader, members

President Boyd K. Packer has returned to Chile several times since his first assignment there 40 years ago.

"And I am glad now to be back here with you again. Now, that may sound strange to you that I say 'to be back here with you,' " President Packer said in an address during the Southern Chile Stake Conference broadcast on Feb. 20. He noted that several thousand miles lay between where he was speaking — a studio in the Conference Center in Salt Lake City — and Church buildings in 40 stakes and 16 districts throughout southern Chile where members had gathered. A Church satellite broadcast brought them together.

Participating with President Packer were Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve, Elder Richard J. Maynes of the Seventy and Sister Elaine S. Dalton, Young Women general president.
