2. C Germany
The first Latter-day Saints in the country were German immigrants who arrived following the close of World War I. Wilhelm Friedrichs and Emile Hoppe were eager to share the gospel with the German community in their new homeland. They published newspaper articles, held meetings in their homes, and soon had a number of people interested in the Church. They reported their efforts to the general authorities in Utah and requested that elders be sent to baptize these converts.
