What tragic news. Please join us in praying for the families of those who have lost so much.

Seven Latter-day Saints are numbered among the hundreds who were killed in a massive mudslide in this West African nation.

More than 330 people died in Monday’s disaster in a rain-soaked sector on the outskirts of the capital city. Almost five acres of hillside collapsed, covering homes in a community that stretched across more than nine acres, according to a CNN report.

No missionaries were injured and all are accounted for, said Bruce Muir, the Church’s humanitarian response director. No Church properties were impacted by the mudslide.
