LDS Missionaries to Return to Puerto Rico After Devastating Hurricanes

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

According to a press release from Mormon Newsroom, LDS missionaries removed from Puerto Rico after September’s devastating hurricane season will be returning. The statement reads:

In the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria, missionaries in Puerto Rico and most surrounding islands were temporarily assigned to other missions. Some of those missionaries will soon return to the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission. Fourteen young elders will return to Puerto Rico, and two senior couples will return to St. Croix and St. Thomas. Decisions about the return of additional missionaries will be made at a later date.

After Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria struck the area, all missionaries were safe and accounted for. As of October 10, 2017, 134 deaths had been reported. Relief efforts and rebuilding are still ongoing. In November, the First Presidency thanked members of the Church for their response to the call for donations, which quadrupled since the hurricanes.
