Full-time missionaries serving in the Jamaica Kingston Mission report that Cuba has now come under the administration of the Jamaica Kingston Mission and that the mission president has begun visiting Cuba to perform mission business. There is a small branch operating in Havana which has operated for several years. It is unclear whether full-time missionaries will be assigned to Cuba anytime soon. Prospects for growth in Cuba are favorable and many other missionary-oriented Christian groups have experienced steady growth as there are over 92,000 active Jehovah's Witnesses meeting in 1,254 congregations and 30,800 Seventh Day Adventists meeting in 294 congregations. Delays opening Cuba to LDS missionary activity appear primarily due to reliance on American missionary manpower and leadership to open nations to missionary work rather than government restrictions.
The first LDS missionary to serve from Cuba just began serving his mission earlier this month. For more information about the LDS Church in Cuba, please refer to the Cuba country profile written by me and David Stewart from Cumorah.com.
