Dear Gramps,

Some of my friends have suggested that Christ not only appeared in Israel and America, but also in other places upon this earth. It sounds logical, but is there any kind of evidence or are there any statements made by the authorities on this? Thanks!

Mathea, from the Netherlands

Dear Mathea,

Indeed the Savior visited other people following his resurrection than those in Jerusalem and in the land Bountiful. We read the following in 3 Nephi 16:1-3

And verily, verily, I say unto you that I have other sheep, which are not of this land, neither of the land of Jerusalem, neither in any parts of that land round about whither I have been to minister. For they of whom I speak are they who have not as yet heard my voice; neither have I at any time manifested myself unto them. But I have received a commandment of the Father that I shall go unto them, and that they shall hear my voice, and shall be numbered among my sheep, that there may be one fold and one shepherd; therefore I go to show myself unto them.
