LDS missionaries return to Puerto Rico following hurricanes

Local News

Missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that were relocated from Puerto Rico after Hurricanes Irma and Maria will soon be back to the island.

In September, over 150 missionaries serving in that area were temporarily assigned to other missions (including some right here in Utah), but Friday the Church announced 14 elders and two senior couples will be returning to the Caribbean Islands.

The Church says decisions about the remaining relocated missionaries will be decided at a later date.

After the hurricanes the Church jumped into action, sending non-perishable food items and materials to rebuild. They also worked with the Red Cross and other agencies to shelter those who lost their homes.
