Latter-day Saints and missionaries in Bolivia are taking precautions to stay safe during ongoing civil unrest following a violently-contested presidential election.

“All the missionaries are well,” reported Elder Enrique R. Falabella, a General Authority Seventy who presides over the South America Northwest Area, in a Tuesday email to the Church News. “We have opened a chat group with the mission presidents and (Area) Seventies to exchange updated information.” 

Missionaries serving in Bolivia are limiting their proselytizing activities to areas near their homes — and only if the situation is safe, he added.
