    History

    In 1970, Joan M. Evans, who was born in the Cayman Islands, joined the Church in Miami, Florida. In 1979, her family returned to her homeland where she operated a motel. She and her family were the only known members of the Church. For years she requested missionaries and was visited by mission presidents once or twice a year.

    Church members Harold and Marjorie Booth from then Rhodesia moved to the Cayman Islands in November 1982 where the Booths found employment. They started holding sacrament meetings (worship services) with the Evans family.

    Harold Booth developed a friendship with a Mr. Wilcox who was the islands’ chief immigration officer, and who had a brother that was a member of the Church in Rhodesia. In September 1985, Wilcox made arrangements so that missionaries complied with immigration law. Shortly thereafter, Richard Brough, president of the Jamaica Kingston Mission, sent the first missionaries.

    Due to the Cayman’s economic strengths, Church membership in the country changes rapidly and has included people from the United States, Jamaica, Guyana, Canada and the United Kingdom. A philanthropist Church member donated land and money for a chapel to be built, which members moved into in July 2003. In 2003, there were 113 members.
