Potential New Districts

It's been over a year since I provided a list of potential new districts. I wanted to update the list as several potential districts listed have become districts and a few more potential districts need to be added. The number in parenthesis indicates how many branches would likely belong to the district. The 2008 and 2007 versions can be found if you click on the year.

These potential districts indicate areas where the Church has either been recently established or where enough members may be present for the creation of a district. Many of these areas may be more prone to the creation of additional branches before the organization of a district, particularly if only two congregations are in the potential district.

Matt, you had one fulfilled prophecy already and didn't even know it! Good work! The Lomé Togo District was created on December 20, 2009. It contains the three (3) existing branches, as you indicated in the post, plus a newly created branch in Lomé called the Be-Kpota Branch for a total of four (4) branches.

I think that in Europe a district could be created in Scotland from the four branches that currently are administered by the Scotland Edinburgh Mission, namely Stornaway, Thurso, Kirkwall and Lerwick. These branches are well established and could probably manage a greater degree of autonomy. Two of these units in the last few years have had Chapels specially converted at considerable cost so the Church must be optomistic about their future. I think that it would likely go under the name Thurso Scotland District.

I also have the number of wards and branches as well as parent stakes or districts.I do not have names of new leadership, however. Aslo, I am lacking diacritical markings for some names, such as Camacari, Cuiaba, etc. Sorry but I don't know how to set up those markings! Maybe you can add them.

Total 50 new stakes, 3 discontinued.
