The Church in Costa Rica

The first missionaries arrived in Costa Rica in September 1946. They presented the president of the Republic with a copy of the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ.

During the 1950s and 1960s Costa Rica was part of neighboring missions, but in 1974 the Costa Rica Mission was organized. The first district conference was held in 1968, with 296 people in attendance. The San Jose Costa Rica Stake was created in 1977. At that time there were 3,800 members in the country.
