175th Anniversary of the First Mormon Missionaries Arriving in Britain

Elder Heber C Kimball and six other missionaries land in Liverpool, England, July 1837.  The first nine baptisms soon take place.  It is not long before the work blossoms.  By 1851, there is a harvest of 34,000 converts in the British Isles (nearly three times more than the American membership at the time).
