The Cumorah Project is a privately funded initiative that engages in research and education. All resources developed are made available online at no cost. Our major areas of emphasis include:
An online atlas providing the location and organizational structure of LDS congregations, missions, stakes, and districts worldwide. The atlas also contains country and state maps of the most populous unreached cities and the status of LDS outreach by ethnolinguistic group. Access the atlas on the left-hand column under "LDS International Atlas - Google Maps." The atlas is strictly for educational purposes. For information regarding LDS meetinghouse locations and times, visit lds.org/maps. Below are links to world regions of the atlas.
“Every one of us has an obligation to fellowship those (converts), to put our arms around them, to bring them into the Church in full activity. It is not enough just to go to Church on Sundays, we must reach out each day. I wish with all my heart that in Costa Rica every man, woman, and child who was baptized would remain faithful and active. And that can happen if all of you make up your minds to reach out and help the new convert. There is no point in the missionaries baptizing people only to have them come into the Church for a little while and then drift off. You have remained faithful, and I thank you for that, but again urge that you make an extra effort to reach out to those who have recently been baptized. They cannot do it alone. They are not strong enough yet. They need your help. God bless you to fellowship the new convert. That is so very, very important. That is a principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Only as we reach out to help others are we truly Latter-day Saints.”Gordon B. Hinckley member fireside, San Jose, Costa Rica, Jan 20, 1997
“We love all of our missionaries who are serving the Lord full-time in the mission field. But there is a difference in missionaries. Some are better prepared to serve the Lord the first month in the mission than some who are returning home after twenty-four months. We want young men entering the mission field who can enter the mission field 'on the run,' who have faith, born of personal righteousness and clean living, that they can have a great and productive mission.”Ezra Taft Benson LDS General Conference, April 1986
