For the first time since 2003, a new stake was created in Peru from a division of existing stakes. Since that time, every new stake has been created from a district. The new stake is the Chimbote Perú Buenos Aires Stake and was created last Sunday. This becomes the third stake in Chimbote, which has had around 20 wards and a few branches in two stakes, and the 88th stake in Peru. Only three other countries have more stakes than Peru, which are the United States (1,438), Brazil (224) and Mexico (212). The country with the most stakes after Peru is the Philippines with 78.
