This news article did not mention the LDS presence in the Latino World. It does mention
several different levels of the Protestant Christians. This newspaper is very much
"LDS orientated".

The LDS Church with many Stakes and 7 Temples in Mexico and many more Stakes and Temples
South of Mexico in the many countries there, why was the LDS world left out of all the statistics and other details of this news article?? There is a number of LDS Christians in Latin America.

This seems strange. Any ideas??

David, I have at least one reason why. this article was written by the Associate Press, a national news agency that has nothing to do with the Church or Deseret News. Deseret News found the article interesting enough to buy the rights to post it here, but no one on the Deseret News staff wrote the article.

Despite the growth of the LDS Church in Mexico, Mormons comprise just over one percent of the population there, with around 1.3 million members. This article however was about Latinos in the U.S. It is a challenge for all churches to reach out to the immigrant communities, as our society is becoming more secular and hostile to religion.

I think previous comments have addressed David's question. But there is one other reason LDS were not mentioned: because the world does not revolve around Mormons.
