Full-time missionaries serving in the Albania Tirana and Adriatic Missions report that both missions have been realigned. The Albania Tirana Mission was renamed the Adriatic South Mission whereas the Adriatic Mission was renamed the Adriatic North Mission.
In addition to Albania, the Adriatic South Mission now includes Kosovo, Macedonia, and Montenegro. Missionaries report that mission leaders are drafting plans to assign the first proselytizing missionaries to Macedonia and Montenegro in the coming months and increasing the number of missionaries assigned to Kosovo. Some Serbian-speaking missionaries from the Adriatic North Mission - formerly the Adriatic Mission - will also be assigned to work in non-Albanian-speaking areas.
The Adriatic North Mission now includes Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, and Slovenia. LDS missionaries have been assigned and branches have operated in Croatia, Serbia, and Slovenia for two decades. Senior missionaries have recently begun working in Bosnia and Herzegovina where two congregations meet in Sarajevo and Banja Luka.
With the assignment of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, and Montenegro to missions and the prospective opening of each country to LDS proselytism within the coming months, all countries in Europe will have an LDS presence for the first time with the exception of a few city-states such as San Marino and Liechtenstein. Notwithstanding this significant church growth development, hundreds of cities throughout Europe remain unreached by the LDS Church.
