Last weekend two districts in Mexico were made into stakes. The Galeana México Stake was created from the Jojutla México District and consists of five wards and one branch. The Jojutla México District was originally organized in 1994. The cities of Galeana and Jojotla are in the southern portion of the state of Morelos and are a part of the México Cuernavaca Mission, which was organized in 2006.
The second district made into a stake last weekend was in Uruapan. The Uruapan México Stake consists of five wards and four branches in Uruapan and the surrounding region. Uruapan is the second largest city in the state of Michoacán, with about 240,000 inhabitants. The district in Uruapan was originally organized back in 1982. A piece of news I failed to report on earlier concerning this part of México is that the district in Acambaro was renamed the Zitácuaro México District because two of the original five branches were transferred to the stake in Morelia and became wards. This leaves the Zitácuaro México District with three branches. The stake in Morelia, which is the largest city in the state of Michoacán, has grown quite large, making it likely to split in the near future.
