The last Mormon missionaries were evacuated from Puerto Rico Tuesday evening.

 

The final 118 arrived in Miami; 155 total were evacuated since Friday.

 

Many tell the Deseret News say they feel heartbroken to leave the island and the people they loved.

 

They won’t return until basic infrastructure is rebuilt.  They did not want to be a burden on the limited resources nor be in any unsafe environments.

 

For now they are reassigned to Spanish-speaking missions around North and Central America.
