Latter-day Saints Support Samoa's 'Campus of Hope'

Recently more than sixty members and leaders from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints honoured an ongoing partnership and commitment to render service at the Campus of Hope in Tuanaimato near Apia Samoa.

The Campus of Hope is run by Samoa Victims Support Group, an organization that provides assistance to individuate and families in emergency situations.

Mormons believe as Russel M. Ballard has taught, "Love is not manifested through large and heroic deeds, but rather through simple acts of kindness."
