The historic increase in Mormon missionaries last year didn't lead to an immediate spike in converts, but church officials say it's too early to draw conclusions.
Detectives are awaiting autopsy results in their investigation into the death of a 25-year-old man who died at a shopping mall north of Detroit, a police chief said Monday.
He said it's also very important to remember that the number of people converted to Mormonism during a member's mission is only one way that the church evaluates effectiveness, Hawkins said.
It was a major undertaking to get thousands of young men and women trained for their missions, get staff for 58 new missions created and to set existing missions for more missionaries, said church spokesman Eric Hawkins.
