Samoan Government and Faith Leaders View 'Meet the Mormons'

Government and faith leaders attended the premiere showing of ‘Meet the Mormons’ at the Apollo Cinemas in Samoa 9 February 2015.

“Meet the Mormons” is a documentary produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that examines the diverse lives of six members living in the United States, Costa Rica and Nepal.

After the screening, His Highness Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi, Samoa Head of State, said, “It is an excellent movie documenting a number of Mormon families and it will be a great opportunity if available for the whole of the people of Samoa to see and view it.”

Reverend Deacon Leaupepe, Chairman of the Samoan Council of Christian Churches, said the movie told “great stories of Mormon families and realities of life they are going through. The whole of Samoa needs to see such for understanding.”

Latter-day Saint leader, Elder Meliula Fata, said the Church will now make the movie available to Church members and guests across Samoa.
