KSL News: Latter-day Saints in Europe - Faith, Hope and Charity
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."

We interviewed Elizabeth Gregg as part of our World Refugee Day event. Elizabeth was first connected with the refugee cause through a Facebook post. One of her friends was creating a sponsor circle for the influx of refugees coming to their community of Seattle, WA. After deciding that participation was possible for their family, Elizabeth got involved.
As part of our World Refugee Day Event, we had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Uzma Jafri. She fills many roles, including physician, business owner, medical director, and most importantly, mother of four. It was during the first few months of her fourth child’s life when Dr. Jafri became interested in refugees. During the countless sleepless nights that accompany newborns, Dr. Jafri would watch coverage of the Syrian refugee crisis. Dr. Jafri felt a pull to help those in the crisis.
