Victor Nugent in 1974 was the first Jamaican on the island to join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. After tiring of the late-night, hard-drinking lifestyle he had adopted, he prayed to God and was shortly introduced to the LDS church. Although he was troubled at not being able to hold the LDS priesthood as a Black Latter-day Saint, he turned to the Lord in prayer and was baptized after “the answer came back loud and clear. It was the truth!” Victor and his family were the foundation of the LDS church in Jamaica for nearly two decades before moving to the US in 2000. Victor resides in Orem, Utah with his beautiful wife Verna. They are the proud parents of 5 children and 12 grandchildren, two of which are currently serving LDS missions.
