Sheler goes beyond growth and influence, also looking at the LDS Church's finances, doctrine, missionary work and the difficulty its international growth may bring.

  Court Filings In; Main Street Trial Set For February
The ACLU's challenge to the April 1999 sale of a one-block section of Main Street by Salt Lake City to the LDS Church is scheduled to go to trial in February.

  Missionaries In Japan Practice 'Road Preaching'
Proselyting in a foreign country is difficult for any English speaking missionaries, but Elder James Blackwood, practices "dendou" a Japanese term for road preaching.

"Sometimes the conversion take time because the Gospel's new to them....In Japan they don't believe in Jesus Christ at all, so we're starting from scratch," Blackwood said.
