(KUTV) The LDS church said none of its missionaries were effected by the fatal attacks in London Wednesday and operations are normal.

The church's area presideent in Europe, Elder Patrick Kearon, released this statement:

Our heartfelt prayers are with all those affected by today’s tragic attacks in Westminster. We pray that the power of God will bring comfort, healing and peace. May the spirit of goodwill bless the people of the United Kingdom.

The attacks came one year after a terror attack in Brussels, Belgium, that injured four LDS missionaries, three from Utah and one from France.
