Verrol Young, president of the Calliaqua Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, said “We follow Jesus Christ; we support strong families, and we believe we should serve our neighbour, regardless of race or religion. We believe and teach personal responsibility, community support, self-reliance and sustainability. The LDS Church looks forward to participating in more humanitarian and service projects to help our brothers and sisters in this country.”
