New Stake Created in Côte d'Ivoire

The Church created a new stake in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) last Sunday.  The Port-Bouët Côte d'Ivoire Stake was created from the Cocody Côte d'Ivoire Stake and Côte d'Ivoire Abidjan Mission and includes the Adjouffou, Jean-Folly, Koumassi, Marcory, Port-Bouët, and Vridi Wards and the Grand-Bassam 1st and Grand-Bassam 2nd Branches.  The Church created its first stake in Abidjan in 1997.  Today there are now five stakes.  The three other stakes were created in 2000 (Abobo), 2006 (Cocody), and 2010 (Abidjan Niangon).  Maps of wards and branches and stakes and districts in Côte d'Ivoire are available on the LDS International Atlas on cumorah.com.

You missed the Troit Rouges Stake from your list, I was serving there when it was split into Niangon by Elder Cardon of the Seventy. So it's Troit Rouges, Niangon, Abobo, Cocody and Port Bouet now. :)
