As Chileans assessed the damage Wednesday from a massive magnitude-8.2 earthquake, the Utah-based LDS Church announced that its proselytizing forces were safe.

"All missionaries serving in Chile have been contacted and are safe," church spokesman Cody Craynor said in an emailed statement.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints counts more than 575,000 members in the South American coastal nation, with nine missions and one Mormon temple, according to the faith's website.
