A 19-year-old Mormon who was less that a week into his mission in South Africa died while working out at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints training center, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

“The cause of his death is unknown at this time,” a spokesman for the church told the paper. According to the Mormon ministry, Zane Lamping was an athletic and well-liked young man who appeared to in perfect health before his sudden death.

The Nevada resident had entered the church’s Missionary Training Center on Nov. 22 and died five days later.

Lamping’s death comes weeks after Christian missionary John Allen Chau, 26, is thought to have been killed by the reclusive Sentinelese tribe of South East Asia.

Chau, who had been warned he would not be welcomed by the 50 to 100 inhabitants on the island of North Sentinel, wrote that on his first visit he was met by arrow fire after he told them, “My name is John. I love you and Jesus loves you.”

The Oral Roberts University grad, who resided in Alabama, is thought to have been killed after a follow-up visit on Nov. 16 though authorities have not retrieved his body.
