WOLFEBORO - Mormon churchgoers on Sunday thanked Mitt Romney for raising the church's profile in his race for the White House and praised the Republican candidate's acceptance speech at a nominating convention in Tampa, Florida last week.

Romney, who would be the first Mormon president if he wins the Nov. 6 election, sat smiling with his wife, Ann, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, spoke about their faith and lauded the former Massachusetts governor's performance at the Republican National Convention (RNC).

Romney, who was a Mormon missionary in France and later became a local pastor in Massachusetts, lives nearby and worships in the church.
