CHURCH NEWS headlines: "Church Educational System Now In 55 Countries" and "Entire Andes Village Joins: They All Wanted Baptism." The latter article tells of the Bolivian village of Huacuyo where the people wrote a letter to the Mission President saying, Please send missionaries to us; our children have learned to read Spanish in school. At our village, they read the Book of Mormon to us. We know it is true, and we want to be baptized." Later research shows much of the story, including this quote, to be exaggerated and/or fabricated.
