SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ outreach through LDS Charities and partnerships with organizations including the International Red Cross, Catholic Relief Services and CARE will be the topic of the Pioneers in Every Land lecture at the LDS Church History Library on May 14 at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
Sharon Eubank, the worldwide director of LDS Charities, will present “That They Might Not Suffer” and include the history of efforts to assist on a global scale from President Spencer W. Kimball’s call to help those on the Horn of Africa 30 years ago and how Mormons can help wherever they live.
Eubank has directed the LDS Church’s humanitarian wheelchair program, established international employment offices in Africa and Europe, served on the Relief Society general board and in 2008, became the regional director of the LDS Charities for the Middle East Africa North Area.
