Read how Sister Lisa Laycock, wife of mission president Larry Laycock of the Santiago Chile East mission, listened to a spiritual prompting and prepared their missionaries for an earthquake 2 weeks prior to the 8.8 earthquake in Chile. Here is a brief quote:
“Nearly two-and-one-half weeks ago, I was awakened at around 4:00 AM by just such a prompting. I did not hear a voice, but the thought was as clear as if it had been in the form of spoken words: “There is going to be an earthquake. Prepare your missionaries.” I sat up in bed and immediately remembered Elder Scott’s counsel. That morning I told Larry what had happened. He immediately set to work organizing our missionaries to prepare for an earthquake.”
This article reminds me to listen to spiritual promptings. How often do we ignore them or forget about them when they come in the night or early morning? Grateful for Elder Richard G. Scott’s counsel to write them down. Also, it makes me thankful for the wife of all mission presidents and their sensitivity to the Holy Ghost.
