https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.or ... nuary-2023As training for missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints continues to evolve around the world, the Church will close the Colombia Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Bogota, effective January 2023.
Missionaries who would have attended the Colombia MTC will attend one of the nine missionary training centers that will continue to operate around the world. As technology has allowed training to begin at home, Church leaders continue to seek the best use of resources according to the needs of each region of the world.
That's now 6 closures since the start of 2019, all but one were on the South/Central American locations.
Chile Santiago, Chile (1981–2019)
Spain Madrid, Spain (1999–2019)
Dominican Republic Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (2000–2019)
Argentina Buenos Aires, Argentina (2000–2019)
Guatemala Guatemala City, Guatemala (1986–2020)
At one point there were 17 MTC's. Now, just 9.
