Missionaries Withdrawn from Haiti

Because of the civil strife in Haiti, missionaries have been withdrawn from the country, Church officials announced on 25 October 1991.

The action was taken in compliance with a U.S. State Department recommendation that Americans leave the country as a precautionary measure.

Eight missionaries who would have completed their mission assignments by the end of the year were given early releases; twenty-four have been assigned to other missions; and twenty-four left with President Robert O. Hickman, mission president of the Haiti Port-au-Prince Mission, for Miami, Florida, where they will continue their efforts.
