West Africa GhanaI’ve received the latest update from the Moncurs in the West Africa Ghana Mission. As always their emails are inspiring and their photos breathtaking. The society and culture in which they serve is an amazing contrast to our own, and one that teaches me at least, that my priorities are not always what they should be. I’m grateful for the further light and knowledge the Gospel of Jesus Christ adds to the lives of the Saints.  As always, I’m humbled by these reports. I will miss them when the Moncurs return home.

Romney Defends Mormon Faith in GOP Debate

As if this should even be a headline in media coverage of an American presidential race. I’m beginning to think it’s the media which is more bigoted toward Mormons. Can you imagine a headline highlighting McCain’s, Giuliani’s or Thompson’s religion? Give me a break!


MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has defended his Mormon faith in a debate with other GOP presidential candidates in New Hampshire.

Romney insisted that his beliefs are similar to those taught by other religions.

He said, “I believe in God, believe in the Bible, believe Jesus Christ is my savior.”

Comparing himself to John F. Kennedy, the only Roman Catholic to be elected president, Romney said he’s a “proud member” of the Mormon church who won’t disown it for political advantage.
