Puerto Rico San Juan Mission

The Church first entered Puerto Rico in 1947, when Latter-day Saint military servicemen began holding church meetings. In January 1964, missionaries were sent to the area, and eventually baptized the first Puerto Rican convert in March. The first Spanish-speaking congregation was organized in 1970. That same year, the first meetinghouse was built. In 1979, there were 1,900 members of the Church in the country. In just eight short years, membership grew to 12,000 and in 1993, it reached 19,700. There are currently over 21,000 Latter-day Saints in the country, as well as 41 different congregations.
