PROVO — A month's worth of work to turn two Provo apartment complexes into a temporary off-campus branch of the LDS Church's Missionary Training Center will begin Wednesday.

Officials for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints confirmed that the church will have access to the two apartment complexes — Raintree Commons and BYU's Wyview Park — beginning Wednesday, May 1, and that missionaries should begin arriving to occupy the new facilities by the end of May.

Some work will continue on both facilities through the summer, including the construction of temporary buildings for dining and other services. Full occupation — 1,000 missionaries residing in Wyview buildings and 700 missionaries residing in Raintree buildings — isn’t expected until later in the summer when the temporary work is completed.
