Young Proselytizing Missionaries Arrive in Gabon
Within the last week, missionaries serving in the Democratic Republic of the Congo Kinshasa Mission report that the first young, proselytizing missionaries have been assigned to the Central African country of Gabon. The Church organized its first official branch in the country approximately a year ago and LDS apostle Elder David A. Bednar dedicated Gabon for missionary work just a few months ago. There appear to be approximately 50 to 100 members on church records in Gabon although the Church has yet to release official membership statistics on the country. Currently there are four young elders (two North American, two African) and one senior couple assigned to the capital city of Libreville.
