Missionaries officially assigned to Kosovo
A young missionary companionship and a senior missionary couple have been assigned to Pristina, Kosovo to begin formal missionary activity. The Pristina Branch was organized earlier this year. Currently LDS membership for Kosovo is estimated at less than 50. Prospects for future growth are favorable although the delayed introduction of LDS missionary work in Kosovo may have resulted in missed opportunities when the population was most receptive.
New branch in Burundi
A second branch was organized in Bujumbura, Burundi less than six months after the organization of the first branch. Convert baptisms continue to occur weekly and prospects appear favorable for additional branches to be organized within the near future.
