SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The LDS Church has put a stop to missions in Venezuela.

Spokesman Dale Bills says difficulties concerning visas for missionaries has led The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to remove its missionaries from Venezuela.

Bills says the problem involves renewing visas and obtaining new visas for missionaries serving in that country. He says the church will reassign missionaries serving in Venezuela to other Spanish-speaking missions in Latin America, the U-S and Canada.
