New District in Nigeria

Last Sunday, the Mbaise Nigeria District was created from four congregations in the Owerri Nigeria Stake. Each of the congregations in the new district have functioned since as early as 1998 when the Owerri Nigeria Stake was created. The Owerri Nigeria Stake now has five wards and three branches. There are now 16 stakes and 20 districts in Nigeria. Below is a list of all the new districts in Nigeria created in the past two years.
  • Ibiono Nigeria District
  • Oron Nigeria District
  • Ikot Ekpene Nigeria District
  • Okrika Nigeria District
  • Abak Nigeria District
  • Ekpoma Nigeria District
  • Mbaise Nigeria District

Has there been any growth in areas where temples have been dedicated? Such as, Vancouver, BC, Stafford, AZ, Cebu City, Philippines, and Kyiv, Ukraine?

As for growth measured by increases in congregations, none of these areas have seen a change in congregational growth trends. I am not sure about the number of convert baptisms however.

The Abbotsford British Columbia Stake, where the Vancouver British Columbia Temple is located, added a ward in July: the Chilliwack 2nd Ward.

A ward was created in the Philippines and reported Sept 4. There has also been an increase of 4 branches in that country since Jan. 1, 2010.
