11 Incredible Mormon Moments Caught on Google Earth

Thanks to mybestlds.com for the story idea.

In March 1842, President Joseph Smith wrote: "the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear."

We are already witnessing the fulfillment of this prophecy today, with more than 400 missions throughout the world and a total Church membership of over 15 million. Here are a few fun "Mormon moments" and photos of LDS architecture captured on Google Earth that illustrate the Church's global influence.
