CNN features Mormons, others helping with Sandy cleanup

Arriving by bus, train and plane, thousands of Mormons from across the country canceled their church plans one Sunday to help with Sandy relief. One of those volunteers, Joshua Brown, documented the day on video.

The Manhattan wedding videographer heard stories of loss, devastation and even some of hope from the people of Rockaway, New York.

"We lost everything, but with people like you, we know everything's going to be alright and we have faith in God," said one woman who choked back tears as he interviewed her.
