I have to admit this reminds me just a bit of thousands of cattle being herded into a corral where they are fattened up with teachings to be ready for market.

Actually, with the way the contracts work, I am not sure 900+ people are being effected. Since the current contracts expire at the end of April, it is likely many residents were planning on moving anyway.

*I have to admit this reminds me just a bit of thousands of cattle being herded into a corral where they are fattened up with teachings to be ready for market."

What a negative view of missionary work and preparation? I see it as a sign of the times, a wonderful development in which the opportunities for spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ will be greatly expanded. I say Hurrah. Things are happening on this earth, both good and bad. The times are hastening on. This is wonderful, and the young people willing to sacrifice years of their lives are doing incalculable good in the world. What a testament to God and His church.

I'm not sure why the residents around the MTC are being vilified for this situation. There is absolutely no way that the proposed construction would have been completed in time to absorb the current surge of missionaries. If anyone deserves blame, it should be the Church Missionary Department for failing to anticipate the size of the surge and the necessary logistics to accommodate it.
