Mormons Leaving the Mormon Church in large numbers

Several articles and TV reports in Utah are confirming that Mormons are leaving the LDS religion in large numbers. Below are some of the links to these stories.
This is very good news and according to full time Mormon missionary Rob Sivulka he has personally received a confirmation from LDS General Authority Marlin Jensen, who is also the Church Historian and Recorder, confirming that Mormons are "leaving in droves."
Rob writes "There are several things to take away from this story: first, this should once and for all put to rest this silly faith-promoting mantra LDS give that their church is the fastest growing church.
Second, this significant news also ought to mobilize the Christian Church to reap the harvest of these disaffected Mormons!
Unfortunately, most of the people who leave Mormonism go into agnosticism or atheism.
The tendency with these people is to throw the baby out with the bathwater.
So, Christians"¦are you ready to give a positive case for your faith as 1 Peter 3:15 commands you to do? We really have a great opportunity here!"
Also, Rob further states "whether you are for or against Romney for president, his run continues to put his faith under the microscope."
Many of us in full time Mormon evangelism have known this for years.
The Internet is a big problem for them.
The hundreds of websites that factually show the many problems with Mormonism, with their history and even with the character of their founders being false teachers and false prophets are and have been making a negative impact on the Mormon religion and causing many to come out of this false religion.
Here at Moriel we support some full time missionaries in Utah.
They report their churches are growing with ex-Mormons.
In addition, while this is good news the bad news is that Mormonism is growing in places like Malaysia and Africa.
Moriel is supporting a missionary that is moving to Malaysia soon and was very influential in teaching me how to reach Mormons.
May the Lord help Tim Oliver and his wife as they transition to Malaysia.
Also, let us continue our support for the full time missionaries in Utah, as they will now be dealing with more and more people turning to the Truth.
Mormons have always had "˜a zeal' for God, but not according to The Truth. Let us keep pushing forward, and be ready for an answer for the Mormons who are searching.
