    History

    In 1984 there were several families of non-African Church members living in Swaziland. The Mbabane Branch (a small congregation) was organized in 1985. In 1987 the government recognized the Church, the first missionaries arrived, and converts came into the Church.

    By 1990 converts were serving full-time missions, and of the 115 members, only the branch president and his family were non-Africans. Swaziland's first Church building was dedicated in 1993 in a ceremony attended by government representatives and presided over by Elder Richard P. Lindsay of the Seventy, who was president of the Africa Area. At that time membership had grown to 650.

    In 1996 members from Swaziland joined some 5,000 others at the Johannesburg regional conference, and in 1998 members in Swaziland traveled to Johannesburg to hear President Gordon B. Hinckley speak.
