KSL Television Interview
Candice Madsen, Melissa Dalton-Bradford, Carol Mikita and I at a park outside a refugee camp in Frankfurt. I was so impressed with the way this KSL team handled this very important subject in their report entitled Latter-day Saints in Europe: Faith, Hope and Charity. Thank you to both of them! And Melissa...well, she and I are simply soul-mates.
KSL News: Latter-day Saints in Europe: Faith, Hope and Charity
"The beauty of Europe coupled with the power of music and faith come together in this one-hour special. Western Europe played a major role in the growth and success of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from the beginnings in the 1830s well into the 20th Century. Honoring that pioneer heritage, members today move forward with faith to face challenges and help those most in need while new temples stand as monuments to the church's growth. "Latter-day Saints in Europe: Faith, Hope and Charity” weaves together the uplifting and inspiring stories of European members with the beautiful music from the historic tour of The Mormon Tabernacle Choir."
Look for coverage of the refugee crisis and Their Story is Our Story around the 24:30 minute mark, which features interviews with Melissa and I.
