Now that Cuba will be open to U.S. visas for religious activities, that island nation may soon be flooded with evangelizers — including its first name-tagged Mormon missionaries.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not registered as an official religion in Cuba and has not sent any full-time volunteers there to proselytize — as it does in so many nations throughout the world.

“We are known for sending missionaries to countries where they are officially recognized and welcomed by governments,” LDS Church spokeswoman Jessica Moody said Wednesday in a statement. “It’s unclear what today’s announcement may mean for the future growth of the church in Cuba or how it will relate to missionary work in that nation.”
