New MTC will operate in Bangkok

To help accommodate the training of new full-time missionaries who are from Southeast Asia and other regions, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will open a missionary training center (MTC) in Bangkok, Thailand, effective January 2024. The Thailand MTC will be in the annex of the new complex surrounding Bangkok’s house of the Lord, which opened in October.

The Church’s 10 missionary training centers provide initial training to new missionaries as they begin their assignments, including language training for those assigned to teach in a language other than their own.
