Ongoing strife in Ukraine has prompted the LDS Church to change the assignments of more than 100 of its missionaries.
The Utah-based faith announced Friday in a news release that 67 missionaries who had previously been transferred from the Ukraine Donetsk Mission will complete the remainder of their proselyting service (two years for young men, 18 months for young women) in their home countries.
Meanwhile, 41 missionaries called to Ukraine have been reassigned to other missions.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has four missions in the troubled Eastern European nation, which also has a Mormon temple in Kiev and is home to more than 11,000 Mormons in 56 congregations.
