strtoupper('F')ewer Nephites Than Mulekites

Mosiah’s grandfather, Mosiah I, led a group of righteous Nephites out of the land of Lehi-Nephi during a time when the main body of the Nephites were wicked and either being absorbed or destroyed by the Lamanites. These righteous Nephites traveled north and discovered the people of Zarahemla (see Omni 1:12–15). Nothing more is heard of the Nephites left behind in the land of Lehi-Nephi. Apparently they either joined with or were destroyed by the Lamanites.

Years later many more Nephites were killed during the recolonizing of the land of Lehi-Nephi under Zeniff, Noah, and Limhi.
