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.
“It is not uncommon for Elders to say, 'If I could have a mission, and be sent among strangers, I could speak to them, because they have not been instructed in the way of life and salvation; I could lay before them the principles of the Gospel, which have been taught to me, without that diffidence of feeling, and fear, which I experience while speaking to my brethren.' It is very true that the first principles of the Gospel taught by the Elders of this Church are easy to be understood, compared with what it is to preach them to our families, or to our neighborhood, and to govern and control ourselves by the principles of righteousness which the Gospel inculcates. Again, to gather the Saints, to preach the Gospel to the world, and convince them of the truth, are much easier tasks than to convince men that you can master yourself, and practise the moral principles inculcated by your religion. That is a small portion of the duty required of you in order to obtain crowns of glory, immortality, and eternal lives.”Brigham Young Journal of Discourses 1:47
“When every physical and mental resource is focused, one's power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously.”Norman Vincent Peale
“Our message is so imperative, when you stop to think that the salvation, the eternal salvation of the world, rests upon the shoulders of this Church. When all is said and done, if the world is going to be saved, we have to do it. There is no escaping from that. No other people in the history of the world have received the kind of mandate that we have received. We are responsible for all who have lived upon the earth. That involves our family history and temple work. We are responsible for all who now live upon the earth, and that involves our missionary work. And we are going to be responsible for all who will yet live upon the earth. No one ever received a greater or more compelling mandate than we of this Church have received, and we'd better be getting at it. I see that it did so much for me, far greater than the time spent, two years. The things that happened in my life transcend so many other values. I am here today because of that mission, and I plead with you now to make the most of your missions.”Gordon B. Hinckley New Mission Presidents' Seminar, LDS Church News, July 3, 1999
