“Our message to the world is that Jesus is the Christ and that His way of life is the way of joy and happiness not only in this life but in the life ahead,” said President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as he arrived in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, Monday, April 16, 2018.

President Nelson, his wife, Wendy, and Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Patricia, flew to Africa following a visit to Jerusalem during their global ministry tour of three continents.

Kenya, home to nearly 14,000 Latter-day Saints and a future temple, is President Nelson’s third destination on his worldwide tour to cities in Europe, Africa, Asia and Hawaii. The tour began in London, England, Thursday, April 12.

This is the new president’s first official trip outside of the United States since he was named the Church’s 17th prophet in January.
