TALLINN, ESTONIA -- On Thursday, Feb 24th a popular TV show of TV3 in
Estonia featured the local LDS leaders. The TV show KAHVEL
(translated FORK) had as guests Tarmo Lepp, President of Tallinn
Estonia District and Almar Pihelgas, President of Stroomi Branch.
They were invited due to the publication of the Book of Mormon in
Estonian (which was released in Jan 2000). This program is well known
for its sharp questions. President Lepp and Pihelgas were asked about
the plural marriage, the law of chastity, the Word of Wisdom, etc.
They were also able to explain the origin of the Book of Mormon,
describe the work of missionaries, etc. Generally, it was very good
media presentation of the Church. Also the local Internet homepage of
the Church was shown on screen (http://my.tele2.ee/lds).
