In 1851, Pratt became the leader of Mormon missionary activities in the Pacific Basin, including northern California, Hawaii, the Society Islands, and Australia. Traveling with a small group of missionary to gold rush San Francisco, Pratt then personally visited Chile, becoming the first Mormon missionary in South America, along with his wife Phoebe and missionary companion Rufus Allen. They spent the winter of 1851-1852 in Chile, but their proselytizing efforts were hampered by language barriers, a revolution in Chile, religious restrictions on non-Catholic religions, and financial difficulties. Nevertheless, Pratt saw a future for Mormonism in Latin America and hoped to translate the Book of Mormon into Spanish upon his return.
