Two series of conferences, one in Mexico and Central America, the other in western South America, will be held in February and March, 1977, by the First Presidency and other General Authorities. More than 240,000 members of the Church live in the thirteen nations invited.

The schedule for the first series of conferences is:

Elder Howard W. Hunter of the Council of the Twelve, area adviser for Mexico and Central America, has been supervising preparations for these conferences, assisted by Elder J. Thomas Fyans of the Presidency of the First Quorum of the Seventy, who is an area supervisor residing in Mexico City.

The second series of conferences includes:
