On my way home from my mission in Brasil, in the fall of 1988, we stopped at the Sao Paulo temple and the MTC was right next door. I remember hearing sometime in the subsequent years that Brasil got a new MTC, which is the one described in the article that now requires a bus ride to the temple. Does anyone know when the new MTC was built, and why? Was the old one too small?

I was looking at the pictures of the 14 international MTCs and the world map provided in this mornings DN newspaper. The purpose of the world map is to add information about the location of these wonderful LDS facilities.

The following MTCs were misplaced on the world map.

#10 Peru

#11 South Africa

#12 New Zealand

#13 Philippines

Please correct the map errors. Thank you

A few weeks ago there were some articles circulating showing several faiths growing quicker than the LDS Church. Does these faiths (Jehovah's Witness, seventh day adventist) have the same incredible investment in missionary facilities or how do they grow their faith?

I'm not sure about Seventh-Day Adventists, OC64, but I can answer about Jehovah's Witnesses.

Last year, there were 7.5 million Jehovah's Witnesses that engaged in missionary work monthly. Each year, they average over 1 billion hours spent in missionary activity.

So, yes, I would say Jehovah's Witnesses are incredibly invested in missionary work.
