New Stake to be Created in Peru in September

Missionaries serving in the Peru Trujillo Mission report that the Huaraz Perú District will become a stake next month, bringing the total of LDS stakes in Peru to 96.  Originally organized in 1989, the Huaraz Perú District currently consists of six branches. 

The number of stakes in the LDS Church in Peru will likely reach 100 within the next or two, making Peru the fifth country to ever have over 100 stakes.  Several stakes appear close to splitting in Lima and Arequipa and some districts may become stakes in the near future.

I can't find any mention of the creation of the new district in Thailand!

As far as I know, no new district has been created in Thailand. The Pakkret Thailand District was renamed the Bangkok Thailand North District, but no new district was organized. The realigned district had a new branch created for English speakers and absorbed a couple units from the Bangkok Thailand Stake resulting in eight branches in the district.
