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.
“We ought always to be aware of those prejudices which sometimes so strangely present themselves, and are so congenial to human nature, against our friends, neighbors, and brethren of the world, who choose to differ from us in opinion and in matters of faith. Our religion is between us and our God. Their religion is between them and their God. There is a love from God that should be exercised toward those of our faith, who walk uprightly, which is peculiar to itself, but it is without prejudice; it also gives scope to the mind, which enables us to conduct ourselves with greater liberality towards all that are not of our faith, than what they exercise towards one another. These principles approximate nearer to the mind of God, because it is like God, or Godlike. ”Joseph Smith Jr. History of The Church, 3:303-4
“The overall objective to be accomplished in missionary work, temple work, providing for the needy, and bringing up our children in righteousness has always been the same; only our methods to accomplish these objectives have varied. Any faithful member in this dispensation, no matter when he lived, could have found righteous methods to have carried out these objectives without having to wait for the latest, specific Churchwide program.”Ezra TaftBenson God, Family, Country, p. 382
