    Hello from Mexico!

    I’m Margo. And I’m Paolo. We’re traveling around the world to learn about children of God. Join us as we visit Mexico!

    Mexico is in North America. It has more than 120 million people. About 1.5 million of them belong to the Church.

    Here’s a Book of Mormon in Spanish, the main language of Mexico. In Spanish, the prophet Alma’s name means “soul.”

    In Mexico families often gather for holidays and to enjoy being together. Children have fun hitting piñatas filled with fruits and candy!

    Chocolate may have been invented in Mexico. It’s used in a sauce called mole. The sauce also includes chilies, nuts, fruits, and spices.

    Do you like fútbol? It’s the most popular sport in Mexico!

    Mexico has 13 temples. These beautiful temples are in Mexico City (left) and Tijuana (right).

    Meet some of our friends from Mexico!

    One day I had a big problem, and I felt really sad. I went to church and listened to the testimonies about Jesus. I felt the Holy Ghost, and it made me happy. I know Heavenly Father helped me feel happy.

    I know that in these days Heavenly Father speaks to the prophet just like He did in the past. If I listen to and follow the prophet, I will be blessed, and it will help me to be more like Jesus Christ.
