Around 20,000 faithful Mormon sing during the first session of the 179th annual general conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints April 4, 2009 in Salt Lake City, Utah. More then a 100,000 mormon faithful will attend the conference over the weekend.

Since 2000, the number of Spanish-speaking Mormons in the U.S. has just about doubled. Many of those Latino Mormons don't have legal documentation, which poses a problem for the church. 

Young Mormons are called to serve missions-two years on the road, trying to convert strangers to the faith. So what happens when Mormons without papers come of legal age, and set off on their missions? Jack Rodolico from the Fronteras Desk reports
