The Church released two new updates regarding missionaries serving in Madagascar and Puerto Rico:
"With the recent containment of the plague outbreak in Madagascar, missionaries who were temporarily transferred from the Madagascar Antananarivo Mission are preparing to resume their service in that country. At this time, 12 missionaries are in various stages of returning to the island of Madagascar. Additional missionaries will arrive as the mission is ready to receive them. All missionaries serving on the island of Madagascar had been temporarily relocated or reassigned in October."
"A second group of missionaries will soon return to the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission. Church leaders have approved the return of 16 additional missionaries with plans for others to join them as conditions allow. Missionaries in Puerto Rico and most surrounding islands had been temporarily assigned to other missions in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria last year."
