First LDS missionaries arrive for training at Mexico City MTC


I think it will be a tremendous benefit for all missionaries. The missionaries who already speak Spanish will be exposed to English, and the missionaries learning Spanish will be more exposed to Spanish all the time.” (Mexico MTC President Carl Pratt)

The first group of missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints arrived Wednesday to officially launch the church's new Missionary Training Center facility in Mexico City.
LDS officials said the inaugural group at the new MTC facility consists of some 100 new missionaries
Missionaries who already speak Spanish will train at the Mexico City MTC for two weeks, while those who are learning Spanish will train for six weeks. After they complete their training, the missionaries will depart for service in Spanish-speaking missions in Central and South America, as well as in the United States.The Mexico City MTC will be the second-largest MTC in the church, after the MTC in Provo, Utah

"To assist with the high volume of missionaries this summer, about 30 teachers from the Provo MTC will work in Mexico in the coming months for six weeks at a time,"  "Eventually, the Mexico MTC will employ up to 150 part-time teachers who will all live in the area."
