In 1852 missionaries were called to Gibraltar, a British Island fortress at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea. One of these missionaries was Edward Stevenson, who had been born there 1 May 1820 and was called to the First Council of Seventies October 1894. A Latter-day Saint group was organized there in 1991, and it became part of the new Cadiz Spain Stake four years later. At the beginning of 2000, there were 24 members in one branch.
