    History

    Two families from the United States and Canada living in Dar-es-Salaam began holding meetings in 1991. Tanzania was included in the newly formed Kenya Nairobi Mission, which was created in July 1991, and in 1992 the Church was legally recognized in Tanzania.

    In February 1992 the first missionary couple arrived, and in December of that year a branch (a small congregation) was created in Dar-es-Salaam. Today there are three branches there. Members from Tanzania traveled to Nairobi, Kenya, in February 1998 to hear President Gordon B. Hinckley speak.

    In March 2002 members of the Church in Tanzania made a 68-hour bus trip to the Johannesburg South Africa Temple, a trip that had been in the planning stages since July 2001.
