The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have confirmed that they had transfer all 155 missionaries and reassigned them to Spanish-speaking missions.
The missionaries safely arrived in Miami on Tuesday. According to the Deseret News 20, one of 36 women evacuated to Atlanta on Saturday. A single elder made it to Atlanta, too. On Sunday, Turner flew home to Idaho Falls, Idaho, one of six sent home early because she had just weeks left on her 18-month assignment.
“We all felt heartbroken, completely heartbroken, to leave our island and the people that we loved,” said Eliza.
“No one complained,” Turner said, “but it was really upsetting. It’s very painful.”
This is the second time in four years that the church have evacuated an entire mission. Deseret News confirmed that Puerto Rico Mission is not closed, but missionaries won’t return until basic infrastructure is rebuilt.
