BYU student Adam Christiansen was among those looking for new digs after learning late Wednesday he would have to move. He said he was "kind of torn" about leaving but as a Finnish teacher at the MTC he knows space there is tight.
"I'm not too upset," he said.
Nerina Urban, a BYU student who teaches Italian at the MTC, said Raintree will lack the "coziness" of the main campus. Still, she said, she can picture the complex as a training center for missionaries.
"It think it's a great place," she said. "It would be a little different. Either way, the work is the same no matter what location."
The church announced this week that its current missionary work force worldwide totals 64,373. Of the mission calls made since Jan. 1, 57 percent are young men, 36 percent are young women, and 7 percent are seniors.
