Facts and StatisticsUpdated on 31 December 2012
Members have been in Haiti since 1977. The first Church member in Haiti was Alexandre Mourra, who, after reading the Book of Mormon, traveled to Florida from his home to be taught and baptized by the missionaries on 30 June 1977.
On 2 July 1978, 22 Haitians were baptized in Hatte-Maree, near Port-au-Prince. In September of that year, J. Frederick Templeman of the Canadian embassy arrived. He and Alexandre Mourra helped organize the first branch (a small congregation), which was created in October 1980 in Port-au-Prince.
Missionary work opened in Haiti in May 1980 under the direction of the West Indies Mission. In 1982, 12 missionaries were serving in Haiti.
A branch was created in Petionville on 31 March 1981, with Alexandre Mourra as president; the branch was divided in 1982. At that time, the Haiti District was created and four missionaries were sent to Cap Hatien.
