President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints met with missionaries and members during a visit to Uruguay’s capital city of Montevideo, Thursday, October 25, 2018, the fourth location in his five-country ministry tour of South America. The port city is home to colonial architecture and the country’s only Latter-day Saint temple.
President Nelson, regarded as a prophet of God by Latter-day Saint faithful, embarked on a nine-day journey nearly a week ago with his wife, Wendy, and Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Lesa.
Missionaries from the Montevideo and Montevideo West Missions were able to spend some time with the global Church leaders Thursday afternoon. In the evening, a devotional was held at the Landia Complex, which was broadcast throughout Uruguay.
