    I am aware of the humanitarian service our church gives to countries in their times of need and I am just wondering if other churches do the same. I would love to hear about it.

      thanks for replying Rochelle Frank - I am glad to know that so many are helping in many ways. I am currently watching the standuptocancer.org on fox and so many are also helping out with cancer research. I am grateful that so many are helping others and I hope I didn't make it sound like the LDS are the only ones - we are just trying to do our part.
