Elder Nelson visits Madagascar, dedicates Malawi

Arriving on Friday, October 21, 2011, Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles spent four days in Antananarivo, Madagascar, where he met with members, missionaries, priesthood leaders, and local officials. He then traveled to Malawi, where he dedicated the land for the preaching of the gospel.
