58 New Missions. At once.

Wow. 58 new missions. A 16% increase all at once.

I am reminded of the massive temple-building efforts just prior to 2000.

One that I spent some time thinking about is the Argentina Comodoro Rivadavia Misssion, which I suppose will take in the three southern most provinces of Argentina. I served a quarter century back in Comodoro Rivadavia and also in Rio Gallegos. There will be under a million people within those mission bounds, though it will still be vast in area; 20,000 people per companionship if there are 100 missionaries. There will be isolated towns of several thousand which will receive missionaries for the first time. It makes me happy with hope for what this surge may be able work.
