Salt Lake Tribune: 'Mormon Land': All about LDS growth - where it's up, down and how many are actually 'active'
"With the COVID-19 pandemic increasingly in the rearview mirror, worldwide membership for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints topped 17 million by the end of 2022, a 1.17% increase from the previous year.

But that growth was hardly wall to wall. Some places grew much faster, some much slower, and some saw their rolls shrink.

There were encouraging signs. Africa, for instance, led the way — again — boasting eight of the 10 nations with the fastest rates of membership growth.

There were troubling stats, too. Ukraine, not surprisingly, saw its Latter-day Saint totals fall as members fled the war-scarred nation, and Russia's ranks — reported for the first time in years — cratered, plunging by nearly 80% since 2017."

Salt Lake Tribune: Pressure builds to investigate LDS Church wealth
"Whistleblower David A. Nielsen is stepping up his push for federal authorities to fully investigate his billion-dollar allegations of financial wrongdoing by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its investment arm, Ensign Peak Advisors.

In a statement issued to The Salt Lake Tribune days after the former Ensign Peak portfolio manager appeared on "60 Minutes," Nielsen's attorney said the IRS and U.S. Department of Justice "must not shrink from the responsibility of enforcing the rule of law" in exploring allegations the church violated its tax-exempt status by amassing upward of $100 billion from investments of tithing funds from members, without spending any of it on charity.

Nielsen has provided enough evidence of church actions in avoiding paying billions in taxes, Atlanta-based lawyer Michael Sullivan said, to warrant deeper government scrutiny."
