Along with the Provo MTC expansion, the Philippines MTC also expanded to include two new buildings to meet the growing needs of missionaries in the Asia Area.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints added two more buildings to the missionary training center (MTC) in the Philippines to accommodate missionary growth in the Asia Area.
“The Philippines MTC is a great blessing to both the Philippines and Asia Areas. Young men and women from these areas learn about their purpose as missionaries and have opportunities to practice working with people and teach missionary lessons. Some also learn a new language while at the Philippines MTC,” said Elder Brent H. Nielson, General Authority Seventy.
One building will be for training and one for residence halls, bringing the total to five buildings. This expansion doubles the capacity from 140 to 280 missionaries.
