CaribWorldNews, GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Thurs. Sept. 3, 2009: Some forty Mormon missionaries, working in Guyana, are getting the boot.
The Mormons, mostly from the United States have been ordered to leave Guyana within 30 days, police said Wednesday, because of expired visas.
Police Commissioner Henry Greene said the missionaries overstayed their visas and failed to extend their missionary status with the Ministry of Home Affairs.
The Mormon church has been in Guyana for more than 20 years, providing humanitarian relief and helping the poor.
