Mormons in India
Yes, there really are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in India. There are congregations in most but not all countries, because not all countries allow the church in their borders. We are law abiding. However, in India, there have been a handful of members since the late nineteenth century. The availability of Church materials in native languages and perhaps also local laws has limited the growth of the Church in India in comparison to say Africa or South America. Despite this, India is making some headlines as their growth picks up - 1000% growth in the last twenty years from 1,000 to over 10,000 members. That's a rate of 450 per year if it was linear growth, though exponential growth is more likely. Read the links if you're interested in more detail.
