Latter-Day APAs

A RELIGION FOR EVERYBODY

But as the diversity of its fold grows, so does devotion: the dependence of immigrant groups on the church for language training, jobs and community support solidifies the bonds of spirituality.

This social-religious hierarchy has survived its own persecutions over the years; criticism of its practices is common, and the question of its legitimacy as a Christian faith still makes for vibrant theological controversy. But make of it what you will; the Mormons will always smile politely and welcome you into their lives. Its not just a religion, said Mao of San Franciscos Chinese branch. Its a way of life.

The Latter-day Saints message is a message that we bring to all children of our heavenly father, not just one ethnic group, said Chiang, the Redwood City missionary. Asians we kind of give the world a better perspective on how this religion is for everybody.
