There are a lot of Tongans in Utah.
After all, one in every four U.S. Tongans resides in the Beehive State, which features several all-Tongan Mormon stakes, including more than 30 all-Tongan LDS congregations.
But did you know that the multi-island Pacific nation has the highest number of Latter-day Saints per capita — in the world?
Of Tonga's 106,513 inhabitants, 64,156 are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according to the Salt Lake City-based faith's official statistics.
That constitutes about 60 percent of the populace, independent Mormon demographer Matt Martinich told Radio New Zealand (RNZ). But the number of "active" Latter-day Saints is much lower.
