First LDS Missionareis Assigned to Montenegro
The first senior missionary couple was recently assigned to the country of Montenegro. Located in Southeastern Europe in the former Yugoslavia, Montenegro has a population of 667,000 that predominately speaks standard Serbian and Montenegrin (a dialect of Serbian). In 2010, the Church organized an administrative branch and a group appeared to function in the capital Podgorica. Senior missionaries have thus far conducted limited proselytism and missionary activity and utilize church materials in Serbian. It appears likely that Montenegro and other former Yugoslav Republics will be assigned to the Adriatic Mission in the near future.
