President Thomas S. Monson To Tour Germany After The Conclusion Of The October 2012 General Conference


Soon after the weekend’s LDS General Conference, church President Thomas S. Monson will be jetting off to Germany, a country that has played a pivotal role in his life and faith.
In the mid-1970s,President Monson, then an LDS apostle, worked behind-the-scenes with government officials in what was then East Germany to build a Mormon temple in that country. That dream came to fruition in 1983, when President Monson prayed at the groundbreaking for a temple in Freiberg. It was dedicated in 1985.
The fact that there is a full week between Pres. Monson’s meetings in Berlin and Munich has generated lots of speculation among German Latter-day Saints.
After the conclusion of the 182 Semiannual General Conference, President Monson will tour Germany, and wll speak in four different cities - Hamburg, Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt. Supposedly the trip was only planned in late September, and there is a full week between the meetings in Berlin and Munich, which has reportedly fueled some speculation even among faithful Church members in Germany.
