Mormon Newsroom released the following statement on Friday, Dec. 8 concerning missionaries returning to the island of Puerto Rico following the devastation of hurricanes Irma and Maria:
“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.”
