“Families of the missionaries and staff are being informed,” Nei Garcia, Brazil Area Director of Public Affairs, told Church News. “We are working closely with local authorities and are grateful for their efforts to respond and investigate. We will also provide missionaries and staff with any needed support. We are grateful for the prayers and support that have been offered at this time both for the missionaries and the family of the individual who was killed.”
