Twenty years ago, Phal Mao helped find a metal smith that could build the first baptismal font for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Cambodia. On May 9, 1994, she was baptized in that newly constructed font to become the first native convert in the country. Building and growth have continued in the Church in Cambodia ever since.
On May 25, Cambodia reached a major milestone with the creation of the Phnom Penh Cambodia North Stake and Phnom Penh Cambodia South Stake, the first stakes in the country.
This is only the second time in Church history that the first two stakes in a single country have been created on the same day.
