  LDS Church Pledges 'Appropriate' Publicity During Olympics
With Salt Lake City expecting hundreds of thousands of visitors for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the LDS Church is trying to find a balance between proselyting and correcting visitors misconceptions about Mormonism. The Church is both preparing for the influx of visitors and setting policies to avoid overbearing proselyting.

  Dedication Of South America For Gospel Commemorated
The dedication of South America for the preaching of the gospel by Elder Melvin J. Ballard took place at 7 a.m. Friday December 25, 1925 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in Parque Tres de Febrero, in a small grove of weeping willows near the banks of the Rio de la Plata. The 75th anniversary open-air commemoration was held on the Buenos Aires temple grounds with ten stakes attending Saturday evening December 2nd and thirteen stakes on Sunday evening. Crowds of thousands, members and non-members, excitedly arrived in colorful old school buses, trucks, cars, or by walking, looking like a modern-day Children of Israel leaving Egypt scene.
