New Stakes in Utah

Last Sunday a new stake was created in Eagle Mountain, Utah named the Eagle Mountain Utah North Stake. All three of the original stakes had a large number of wards, ranging from 11 to 14. Growth has been strong in Eagle Mountain due to members moving to the growing city as all four stakes being created since 2000.

In the coming week or two, a new stake will be organized in Smithfield, Utah. I will provide more information on the number of congregations in both of the new stakes once they become available.

What is the story behind the new stake in Abidjan, Ivory Coast? It was created back in February.

The new stake in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire was the Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire Niangon Stake. The new stake has five wards and was created from the Yopougon Cote d'Ivoire Stake, which is now named the Abidjan Cote d'Ivoire Toit Rouge Stake. The Cocody Cote d'Ivoire Stake has experienced rapid growth and may divide in the next year or two as there are nine wards and two branches in the stake.
