Dominican RepublicThe first Dominican members were converted while living in the United States. They returned to the Dominican Republic in 1978, and missionaries arrived the following year. In one year, more than 350 converts joined the Church. In 1992, Dominican members received satellite transmissions of General Conference, a worldwide semiannual Church meeting broadcast from Salt Lake City.
Church members and missionaries donated many hours in the relief efforts following the devastation of Hurricane George, September 1998.
The first Church temple in the Caribbean was dedicated in Santo Domingo on September 17, 2000. About 80 Church meetinghouses used for Sunday worship dot the country.
