Transcript of Mormons

Mormons A group of people who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and serve God faithfully. Who are they? Why did they go west? They went west because they were persecuted in New York, Ohio, Missouri, and Illionis. They were persecuted for many of thier beliefs but mostly for practicing pologamy. Money problems
When the Mormons left they had little money to work with. Wealthy Mormons were willing to give to those less fortunate so everyone could go west. There are over 14 million members of the Mormon faith. Founder By: Bailey Hoseney Zach Stewart Pologamy THEY DO NOT PRACTICE POLOGAMY ANYMORE Pologamy is when a man has more than one wife.
