"Today, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is a worldwide religion. Church membership is currently over 13 million, with over half of the members living outside the United States. Although Utah is often thought of as the home of the Mormons, only about 14 percent of the Church membership lives in Utah.
With a global focus, the Church has more than 100 temples worldwide, prints monthly magazines in 50 languages for adults, youth, and children and has published more than 100 million copies of the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ in over 93 languages.
With over 50,000 missionaries in 162 countries, Church membership continues to grow exponentially.
Members throughout the world are organized into local congregations called wards or branches. These congregations are organized geographically, and members attend a ward or branch near their home, meeting together each Sunday to worship and learn. The leader of a congregation is a bishop or a branch president. He is not paid for his service, but he donates his time to serve the congregation."
