What happened on this date in Mormon History - several curious snippets every day
50 years ago today - Nov 25, 1967
Elder Spencer W. Kimball visits northern Brazil on a fact-finding assignment to determine where to expand or cut back missionary activity in the area. Many Brazilians are mixed-race with African-American heritage. Within a year, a new mission is created. Consideration of the race issue in Brazil informed Kimball, who later had a revelation on priesthood. Northern Brazil became one of the most successful missionary fields in the Church.
