Before visiting Utah, Surender and Bubbles Kandhari also toured the Church’s Washington D.C. Temple.

Two prominent Sikh leaders in the Middle East recently visited the global headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Salt Lake City. Surender Singh Kandhari and Bubbles Kandhari met with the Church’s First Presidency on Friday, April 29, 2022.

The Kandharis described their meeting with President Russell M. Nelson, President Dallin H. Oaks, and President Henry B. Eyring as “warm and hospitable.”

Also attending the meeting was Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Elder Jeffrey H. Singer of the Middle East/Africa North Area Presidency and his wife, Sandra.

Bubbles Kandhari said the experience left her “speechless.”

“There are no words to describe how much love is there between all of you and how much love you have given us,” she said. “It was amazing and we are really so happy and honored to be here.”
