    Mongolia is in Asia, in between China and Russia.

    There are about 3 million people in Mongolia and about 12,000 members of the Church. What do you notice in this picture that is the same as your family? What is different?

    This is the Mopmohpi Hom, the Book of Mormon.

    There are more horses in Mongolia than people! Mongolian festivals have horse racing, archery, wrestling, dancing, and tasty food.

    Many families in Mongolia live in the capital city, Ulaanbaatar.

    Other families live in the countryside. They live in tents called gers and herd animals such as yaks, horses, and camels.

    Yaks are like cows—but with more hair!

    Meet some of our friends from Mongolia!

    I know Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that He loves me and all children everywhere. I love to go to church and Primary, because when I go there I can learn about Jesus.

    I know that we have a living prophet, President Russell M. Nelson. He teaches things that are true.
