    Samoan Stamp Honors First LDS Missionaries

    On 9 June 1988, the Samoa post office issued a new postage stamp commemorating the arrival of the first Latter-day Saint missionaries in Samoa one hundred years ago.

    The three-dollar stamp depicts the Apia Samoa Temple. Souvenir sheets showing the islands of Savai’i, Upolu, and Tutuila, along with a reproduction of the stamp, have also been issued. Arrows show the route of the first missionaries.

    The sheets carry a quotation from the Book of Mormon: “Great are the promises of the Lord unto them who are upon the isles of the sea.” (2 Ne. 10:21.)
