Elder Ardern Invites Kiribati President to ‘Come and See’

While visiting Kiribati last week, Elder Ian S. Ardern, Pacific Area President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, met with His Excellency Taneti Maamau, President of the Republic of Kiribati.


President Maamau accepted an invitation from Elder Ardern to attend the Tarawa East Stake conference on Sunday 26 January.

Elder Ardern and fellow members of the Pacific Area Presidency, Elder K.
