Two New International Districts in China

Two new districts were created last Sunday in China for foreigners residing in the country.  The Central China International (English) District was organized from the Beijing China International (English) District and includes two branches in Xian and Qinghao and a third district branch that was renamed the Central China International (English) Branch.  The Shenzhen China International (English) District was also organized from the Beijing China International (English) District and includes two branches in Guangzhou and Shenzhen.  Long distances between branches and district headquarters appears the primary reason for the organization of these two small districts.  Each of these two districts appear to also accommodate several groups of members residing in additional cities which remain too small in numbers to merit the organization of their own branches.  There are now four international districts in mainland China.

Having leadership throughout the country would likely make it easier for missionaries to have good outreach once they are allowed to proselytize
