Personal Touch with Rebecca Cressman segment, she interviews Mariama Kallon. Raised in war-torn Sierra Leone, Mariama Kallon saw many things as a young girl that might fill a person with fear and hatred. Soon after witnessing the violent murders of parents and siblings and spending her youth fleeing from rebels, she was introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ and found hope and peace in God. She was given a humanitarian kit by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and later accepted a Mission call to Salt Lake’s Temple Square. Today, Mariama stands as an example of the divine purposes of humanitarian work and tells her story to numerous audiences, urging them to participate in this work. Deseret Book has published her story in a DVD called “Delivered By Hope." She currently resides and works in Salt Lake City, where she has attended LDS Business College.
