From the Ensign: "[This stamp] is part of a four-stamp set, each stamp recognizing a religion in the Cook Islands—Roman Catholic, Anglican, Seventh-Day Adventist, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The stamps each depict a person and a church building representative of that religion. The [Latter-day Saint] stamp shows Elder Osborne J. P. Widtsoe (his name, unfortunately, is misspelled), the first [Latter-day Saint] missionary to the Cook Islands, along with a typical modern meetinghouse."
