First Groups of Missionaries Complete Training at Mexico Training Center
August 20, 2013
Mormon missionaries recently trained at the new Mexico Missionary Training Center (MTC) will put their newly acquired Spanish skills to use as they head to assigned missions in the United States and around the world.
Elders and Sisters leaving this week from the Mexico MTC in Mexico City are among the first group of native English-speaking missionaries to receive six weeks of training that includes learning Spanish.
Other missionaries whose native language is Spanish were the first to enter the new Mexico MTC 26 June. They completed two weeks of training and are now fulfilling assigned missions.
Volunteer missionaries serve for up to two years sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Nearly 75,000 Mormon missionaries are now serving around the globe.
Editors note: We are grateful to those who have responded to the invitation to support the missionary program financially, as well as those, male and female (including couples), who are "suiting up" to go out into the field. Please enjoy this video from the new MTC in Mexico.
A prompting received by a sister missionary at General Conference leads to a referral. She spent weeks trying to contact the referral with no success. Imagine her when she meets a stranger from Australia, whom is the very person she has been trying to contact.
Sister Back feels very honored and fortunate to serve her mission on Temple Square. One of 222 sisters there, she feels she is walking on sacred grounds every day. From Finland, Sister Back gained a desire to serve a mission when she saw the gospel change the life of a friend.
