The Church reported that a week from this Sunday the first LDS stake in Amapá State, Brazil will be organized from the Macapá Brazil District. Missionaries report that the Church has attempted to have the district become a stake for the past year or so. It appears that all five branches in the district will become wards once the stake is organized.
With the creation of the first stake in Amapá, there will be only one Brazilian state without a stake: Roraima. In Roraima, the sole district in Boa Vista also appears close to becoming a stake within the next couple years and, like the Macapá Brazil District, includes five branches all within one city.
