New District in Malaysia
A new district was created in West Malaysia last Sunday. The Johor Bahru Malaysia District was organized from the Singapore Stake and includes two branches in the Johor Bahru area. The organization of a new district with only two branches has been very unusual over the past five years for the Church as a whole as such districts often have extremely limited priesthood leadership manpower and tend to draw large amounts of resources from individual branches within the district. The organization of a district for the two branches in Johor Bahru may indicate prospects for the organization of additional branches within the near future. Currently in Malaysia the Miri East Malaysia District also has only two branches at present but this district also includes three groups in Miri and Brunei.
