SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ leader, President Russell M. Nelson, concluded his Latin America ministry tour Sunday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The nine-day tour included visits to Guatemala, Colombia, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil. Nelson met with 344,452 people in total, according to TheChurchNews.com. 

The Church’s president has now logged 98,033 miles on six continents, 28 nations and 43 cities since January 2018.

“There are exciting things ahead,” Nelson said during his ministry in Brazil. “This work is moving forward at an accelerated pace. I can just hardly wait to bounce out of bed each morning and see what the day will bring.”

Nelson is the fifth Church president to visit Brazil, according to newsroom.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Other presidents to visit include David O. McKay, Spencer W. Kimball, Gordon B. Hinckley and Thomas S. Monson.
