Rebecca Cressman's Personal Touch Interview with Scott Taylor is entitled "Capturing Brotherly Love in Action." Scott Taylor is an experienced journalist who just returned from Haiti while on assignment for the Deseret News. He and his photographer, Jeff Allred, covered post-earthquake relief efforts, documenting the delivery of life-saving food, water, and blankets. He also captured the experiences of a team of volunteer LDS physicians and nurses. Listen to his reflections as they give each of us a window to see, in his own words, “true religion in action.”
