President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and his wife, Wendy — along with Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Katherine — will travel to Asia in mid-November as the prophet continues his worldwide ministry. These global faith leaders will visit four countries in seven days, with trips to Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore and Indonesia, from November 15 to November 22, 2019.
In the countries to be visited, there are approximately 30,000 Latter-day Saints, four missions and one recently announced temple in Cambodia.
President Nelson and Elder Christofferson will speak at member meetings with Latter-day Saints and friends of the faith. They will also meet with government and religious leaders of these countries.
This will be the first visit to Vietnam and Cambodia by a Church president in more than 20 years. President Gordon B. Hinckley visited Vietnam and Cambodia in 1996, and Singapore and Indonesia in 2000. No other president of the Church has visited these countries.
President Nelson visited Singapore and Indonesia as an apostle in February 2010. His return in November will mark celebrations of the Church’s 50th anniversaries in these countries.
