This news article did not mention the LDS presence in the Latino World. It does
mentionseveral different levels of the Protestant Christians. This
newspaper is very much"LDS orientated".The LDS Church
with many Stakes and 7 Temples in Mexico and many more Stakes and Temples South of Mexico in the many countries there, why was the LDS world left out of
all the statistics and other details of this news article?? There is a number
of LDS Christians in Latin America.This seems strange. Any ideas??
David, I have at least one reason why. this article was written by the
Associate Press, a national news agency that has nothing to do with the Church
or Deseret News. Deseret News found the article interesting enough to buy the
rights to post it here, but no one on the Deseret News staff wrote the article.
Despite the growth of the LDS Church in Mexico, Mormons comprise just over one

however was about Latinos in the U.S. It is a challenge for all churches to
reach out to the immigrant communities, as our society is becoming more secular
and hostile to religion.

other reason LDS were not mentioned: because the world does not revolve around
