District Discontinued in Argentina

A district was recently discontinued in Argentina.  Formerly comprising four branches in the Chaco area of Argentina, the General Jose de San Martin Argentina District was combined with stakes in Resistencia and Formosa.  The El Colorado and San Martin Branches now pertain to the Resistencia Argentina Stake whereas the Pirane Branch pertains to the Formosa Argentina Stake.  The Campo Medina Branch is no longer assigned to a district or stake and reports directly to the Argentina Resistencia Mission. 

Northern Argentina near the Paraguay border has experienced the most drastic congregation consolidation in the country over the past few years as many small branches have closed.  There are now 71 stakes and 36 districts in Argentina.
