The Church has issued the following update regarding missionaries in Madagascar:
"With the recent containment of the plague outbreak in Madagascar, missionaries who were temporarily transferred from the Madagascar Antananarivo Mission are preparing to resume their service in that country. At this time, 12 missionaries are in various stages of returning to the island of Madagascar. Additional missionaries will arrive as the mission is ready to receive them. All missionaries serving on the island of Madagascar had been temporarily relocated or reassigned in October."
