Missionary Who Died While Serving
"I beheld that the faithful elders of this dispensation, when they depart from mortal life, continue their labors in the preaching of the gospel of repentance and redemption" President Joseph F. Smith (D&C 138:57).
Elder Killed in Oaxaca, Mexico
A full-time missionary serving in Oaxaca, Mexico, died Nov. 9 after he was struck by a truck. Killed was: Elder Joel Galindo Flores, 23, of Pachuca, Mexico.
Elder Flores was standing on a sidewalk speaking with a group of people when a 10-wheel dump truck jumped the curb, hitting the missionary, according to a witness.
Elder Flores was transported to several different hospitals for treatment but died later that evening. A convert, he had served 13 months in the Oaxaca Mexico Mission. Before leaving on his mission, Elder Flores baptized his widowed mother, Maria Antonia Galindo Dominges, and two of his sisters. A fellow missionary remembered Elder Flores being an "amazing person" who cared deeply for the people he was teaching. (Published in Deseret News, Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005)
