Prophecy Fulfilled 012

The Book of Mormon says in the last days the Lamanites, aka remnant of the house of Jacob, will go forth among the numerous gentiles and be in the midst of them 3 Nephi 20:16. The text further prophesies the Lamanites will be among many different gentile nations 3 Nephi 20:20. It also says the remnant of Jacob will be among and in the midst of the gentiles in a position of power and influence 3 Nephi 21:12.

In the great Latin American diaspora, Lamanites have literally gone forth as minorities among several gentile nations, many are currently living among or in the midst of gentiles, and in the case of Hispanics in the US, Lamanites are beginning to wield considerable power.

The US Census Bureau reports that 57.5 million Hispanics were living in the US in 2016, comprising 17.8 % of the total US population. The Spanish Instituto Nacional de Estadística reports that by 2017 2,473,784 Latin Americans had emigrated to Spain, comprising 5.3% of the total Spanish population. These Latin American emigres are literally fulfilling the prophecies in 3 Nephi 20 & 21.
