    Kuwait Officially Recognizes the Church

    The Church has received official recognition for its local leaders and organizations from the State of Kuwait. Nearly 300 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints live and work in Kuwait; they come from many countries around the world. Formal recognition from the government allows local leaders to better serve the needs of members in Kuwait.

    Bishop Terry Harradine of the Kuwait Ward, Manama Bahrain Stake, expressed gratitude to the government of Kuwait for allowing freedom of worship in Kuwait, particularly for the expatriate workforce, and for promoting religious tolerance within the country.
