Districts Discontinued in France and Nicaragua


Formerly consisting of six branches, the Caen France District was discontinued and branches in the district were absorbed under the Paris France Stake (Caen, Le Havre, and Rouen Branches), Angers France Stake (Alencon Branch), and the France Paris Mission (Cherbourg and Coutances Branches).  Missionaries report that there had been efforts for the district to become a stake one day, but inadequate numbers of members, activity rates, and distance between congregations were persistent obstalces.  There are now nine stakes and one district in France.


A district was discontinued in Nicaragua.  Comprising of three branches, the Rivas Nicaragua District was discontinued, the Moyogalpa Branch was closed, and the two remaining branches in Rivas now report directly to the Nicaragua Managua South Mission.  Currently no additional districts appear likely to be formed or closed in Nicaragua.  There are now nine stakes and six districts.
