(VIDEO) Filmmaker Shows Why Mormons Help Hurricane Sandy Victims

As relief efforts continue in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are joining forces to assist those affected by the devastation. On Sunday, 11 November, thousands of Mormons shortened or cancelled their worship services and traveled from around the East Coast to give aid in areas of New Jersey and New York.

A Church member in the New York area made a video to document the relief efforts and to encourage more volunteers to help. In the process he caught the essence of why Mormons help their neighbors in times of need, such as in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

As one Mormon Helping Hands volunteer featured in the film says, “It’s the gospel [of Jesus Christ] in action. … It’s what Christ taught, and we’re showing what we believe.”

Watch the video below.
