Large Stakes Outside of the United States and Canada Likely to Split Soon

It is much more difficult to predict which stakes will split internationall because the Church does not have individual websites for Church units outside of Canada and the United States. However, one can find the number of Church units in a given country by using the website and finding the locations for all the units. This can be quite tedious and can be difficult to tell where stake boundaries lay, but I have done my best to find out how many units each stake or city has. I have not included Mexico, the South Pacific and most of Brazil in this list.

  • Kinshasa DR of Congo (28 wards, 5 branches in three stakes)
  • Harare Zimbabwe Stake (10 wards, 2 branches)
  • Takoradi Ghana Stake (9 wards, ~4 branches)
  • Maracay Venezuela Stake (12 wards)
  • Guayana Venezuela Stake (11 wards, 2 branches)
  • Juiz de Fora Brazil Stake (11 wards)
  • Belem Brazil (25 wards in three stakes)
  • San Cristobal Dominican Republic Stake (7 wards, 7 branches)
  • Santo Domingo Dominican Republic (65 wards, 10 branches in 8 stakes)
  • Chimbote Peru (20 wards in two stakes)
  • Chiclayo El Doradu Peru Stake (~10 wards)
