    History

    An official congregation was organized in November 1966 by a Church Apostle, Elder Marion G. Romney. Prior to that time, United States expatriates working in Venezuela held meetings at home. Missionaries were sent from the Costa Rica Mission to Venezuela, and in February 1967, the first convert was baptized.

    President Spencer W. Kimball, then Church President, visited Venezuela in January 1975. At that time there were 4,000 members meeting in 23 congregations. In 1979, there were nearly 5,000 members. Membership has tripled within the past 10 years.
