Elder D. Todd Christofferson presented members from Nepal with the first copies of the Book of Mormon translated into Nepali
According to LDS Media Talk, the Nepali Book of Mormon copies were expected to be released September 30, but Mormon Newsroom tweeted pictures of Elder Christofferson presenting the Nepalese saints with Nepali scriptures more than a month ahead of schedule.
The Nepali translation marks the Church's 111th translation of the Book of Mormon and the latest translation since the Kosraean translation published more than 12 years ago.
With this new translation, Saints in Nepal are better equipped to follow President Thomas S. Monson's council in his April 2017 general conference address:
"My dear associates in the work of the Lord, I implore each of us to prayerfully study and ponder the Book of Mormon each day. As we do so, we will be in a position to hear the voice of the Spirit, to resist temptation, to overcome doubt and fear, and to receive heaven’s help in our lives."
