Statement Following Intruder Incident at the Brazil Missionary Training Center


Due to recent media inquiries, the following statement was issued by Nei Garcia, Brazil Area director of public affairs:

Early Wednesday morning, February 5, an individual armed with a knife entered the missionary training center in São Paulo, Brazil. Security guards were able to detain the man near the reception desk until police arrived. At some point, when the intruder attempted to attack police, he was shot and killed by police. None of the missionaries or MTC staff were harmed during this incident. Families of the missionaries and staff are being informed.

We are working closely with local authorities and are grateful for their efforts to respond and investigate. We will also provide missionaries and staff with any needed support. We are grateful for the prayers and support that have been offered at this time, both for the missionaries and the family of the individual who was killed.
