A former Mormon bishop and co-founder of a nonprofit group that helps women and children in Third World villages faces sentencing in November for sexually abusing children.

Lon Harvey Kennard, 69, from Heber City, Utah, pleaded guilty this week to three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. Each count involves a different victim, and carries a sentence of 5 years to life.

The victims were among six children the man and his wife adopted from Ethiopia, where the couple helped establish an orphanage.

The Associated Press isn't naming the man to protect the identity of the victims.

The couple's nonprofit organization provided services to destitute villages in Mexico, Central America, Africa and the Caribbean.

Kennard was initially charged with 43 counts stemming from abuse that began in 1995, around the time the defendant was bishop of his Latter-day Saints ward and one year after he and his wife started the nonprofit agency.
