Mormon missionaries recently trained at the new Mexico Missionary Training Center (MTC) will put their newly acquired Spanish skills to use as they head to assigned missions in the United States and around the world.

Elders and Sisters leaving this week from the Mexico MTC in Mexico City are among the first group of native English-speaking missionaries to receive six weeks of training that includes learning Spanish.

Other missionaries whose native language is Spanish were the first to enter the new Mexico MTC 26 June. They completed two weeks of training and are now fulfilling assigned missions.

Volunteer missionaries serve for up to two years sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Nearly 75,000 Mormon missionaries are now serving around the globe.
