A new district was recently created in southern Mexico. The Chojolhó México District was organized from the San Cristóbal México Stake (organized in 2007) and includes several branches in rural communities north of the city of San Cristóbal. Branches included in the new district were organized within the past few years and are located in areas populated primary by Tzotzil Amerindians who speak dialects of the Tzotzil and Tzeltal languages. Full-time missionaries reported a couple years ago that they began learning Tzotzil to teach locals about the Church. The organization of the district appears to signify that local leadership has been developed to meet the demands of both branch and district responsibilities. According to store.lds.org, there are three LDS materials available in Tzotzil: the Book of Mormon, Gospel Principles, and a family guidebook.
There are now 222 stakes and 36 districts in the LDS Church in Mexico.
