Mormon missionaries in PanamÃ¡ got to experience something unusual in their return journey to the United States. They flew in a C-130 plane during their evacuation back to the United States on Monday.
The flight from Panama to Texas would take about 8 hours. Texas is the closest base for the C-130.
The Mormon church, or the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is the process of removing almost all of their missionaries worldwide due to the pandemic. The Washington Post did a story on the chartering of flights happening currently around the world.
Currently there are about 70,000 Mormon missionaries that are serving around the world.
