A Haitian man died Wednesday night while serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in his home country, a spokesman said.

“Elder Saintlouis Pointdujours Dortilus was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday evening with health complications before passing away,” church spokesman Sam Penrod said Thursday in a statement. “Elder Dortilus, age 24, is from Haiti and began his missionary service in September 2020.”

Elder Dortilus was serving in the Haiti Port-au-Prince Mission.

“We send our love and prayers to the family of Elder Dortilus and to the missionaries in the Haiti Port-au-Prince Mission as they remember this faithful missionary,” Penrod said.
