  2. I pray and believe that the grace of God can be channeled in Mali through this man. He has demonstrated already the power that preisthood hold to change lives of many people to be better and to have prosperity. Wish you all the best in running for Presidency:_ from South Africa Gugulethu Branch LDS member.

  3. I am a White Latter-day Saint from the United States.

    If this fellow wins the Malian Presidency as well as Mitt Romney wins the U.S. Presidency, then there will be two international heads of state who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at the same time! Maybe Samake and Romney will get a chance to meet each other on diplomatic business (and discuss some Gospel stuff).
