1875 · The First Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

The first missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints entered Mexico in two groups. The first group went into Sonora and baptized the first 5 members in Latin America. The second group went down to Mexico City and handed out translated verses of the Book of Mormon. The missionaries worked throughout the nation until 1889 and baptized many. Because of the government’s views of polygamy, missionaries weren't allowed to teach and baptize while the mission was closed from 1889 to 1901. The church has since increased from the initial 5 to 1.5 Million members.

Name Meaning

1 Asturian-Leonese and Spanish (Valdés): habitational name from either of the two places called Valdés in Málaga and Asturies.2 Catalan (Valdès): nickname from Catalan valdès ‘Waldensian’, i.e. a member of a Puritan religious sect which was founded in the 12th century by Peter Valdes (died 1205 ) in southern France. The widespread distribution of the surname in present-day Spain, however, suggests that other sources may also have been involved.
