[Most areas in Germany are not ready for the Church, but eventually many of the German nations will embrace the Gospel.
—Daniel Cam, First mission president in Germany, 1853
Bremen is in many respects the freest German city I have so far visited, although city officials did not want to permit me to hold a public service, because there is a great fear of the Mormons. … Although it was difficult to get started I am sure that a great work will be performed in that area, sooner or later.”
—Abraham H. Cannon, Founder of the Bremen Branch and later an Apostle, 1882
