Third LDS Stake Created in Haiti
A new stake was created in Haiti last Sunday. The Church created the Carrefour Haiti Stake from the Port-au-Prince Haiti Stake and includes five or six wards from Carrefour on the east to Petit Goave on the west. The organization of several new wards over the past year within the Port-au-Prince area merited the organization of the country's third stake. The other stake in the Port-au-Prince area - the Port-au-Prince Haiti North Stake - also appears close to splitting as there are 10 wards in the stake at present. The Church created its first stake in Haiti in 1997 and its second stake in 2003.
