Breaking: Former Ogden Mayor Matthew Godfrey Called as LDS Mission President - Updated

Alternate headline: Crazed and Annoying Mormon Polititian gets shipped off to "Virtual Siberia."

Here's the lede, peeps:
OGDEN — Former Ogden Mayor Matthew Godfrey has been called to be a mission president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He will serve for three years as president of the church's Peru Lima North Mission in South America.
Godfrey will take over as leader of the mission from current President John Erickson on July 1 and will oversee dozens of missionaries and supervise the church's missionary work in the area.
