MR says: A feature on the many cultures and political views of Mormons living in Sacramento.

At 9 o'clock Sunday mornings, as many as 400 Tongans, Samoans, Maori and other Pacific Islanders fill the Mormon Church south of Florin Road to sing and pray in Tongan with a smattering of English.

They're followed at 11 o'clock by about 300 Marshall Islanders and Fijians in Marshallese, Fijian and English.

Two miles away in Oak Park, 200 Hmong Mormons get services and songs in Hmong and English.

After the 11 a.m. Hmong service, about 200 Mormon Latinos arrive for services in Spanish for immigrants from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala and Spain.
