New cities opening for missionary work

Hungary - Two more cities have been or are about to open for missionary work in Hungary. Bekescsaba opened for missionary work in January of 2007, but a branch wasn't created until recently. The Bekescsaba Branch has already outgrown its rented facilities for Sunday meetings. Oroshaza, a city located near Bekescsaba in the southeast of the country, has just opened for missionary work.

Uganda - Located in the northern portion of Uganda, the city of Gulu has had a group meeting for sacrament on Sunday, but has not been organized into a branch. The Uganda Kampala Mission is waiting for approval to organize the new branch.

Ethiopia - A missionary in the Uganda Kampala mission reported that there has been a request to open a branch in the city of Awasa. This would be the fourth branch in the country if organized, and the first to be located more than 100 miles away from the capital Addis Ababa.

A country that might be opening soon to missionary work

A missionary in the Mozambique Maputo Mission stated that Angola might open for missionary work sometime later this year. There have been several missionaries from Angola who have or are serving in Mozambique and there is a branch established in the capital of Luanda.
