As I explained back in September 2011, I am seeing more Mormons in and around Antigua Guatemala than usual. Now the interesting part is that instead of just men, now you can see a lot women missionaries.
According to commenter Fulano, “The Mormon church (officially called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) actually baptizes over 300,000+ converts per year worldwide.” In the comments, Nathan added: “Church here is alive and well with 90% local members about 10% are expats like me. THE church is strong and growing fast. THE people that join the church here as everywhere do so because they are looking for something better than what they have. The church offers them the gospel of Christ and they embrace it.” For additional interesting information about the Mormon in Antigua Guatemala, read the comments on the post Mormon Meet Up in Antigua Guatemala.
Since my last report, I have seen a new church in San Pedro Las Huertas, aside from the one on 1a avenida norte in Antigua Guatemala. Do you guys know if there are more Mormon churches around La Antigua?
