There were meetings today with 3 Stakes in South Auckland to complete the following:1. Split the 3 existing Stakes to create an additional 2 to create a total of 12 for a city with a population of 1.5 million (I know one of the Stakes has 10 very large well attended wards).2. My understanding is that they will also create 3 additional wards.
Great news! Any word on the name of the two new stakes?
Not yet, I wasn't at the meetings but know people who were. I will post once I know.
Auckland New Zealand Otara and Auckland New Zealand Redoubt Stakes.

27 of the 28 New Zealand Stakes are on the North Island (which has about 77% of the population).The Wellington Mission covers 7 stakes and 3 districts. 6 of these stakes and 1 of these districts are on the North Island. The South Island has only the Christchurch Stake and 2 districts.The Auckland Mission covers 21 stakes. It also has a district in the Cook Islands. 12 of these stakes are Auckland stakes. 2 more stakes are in the Northland north of Auckland. 7 stakes in this mission--including 4 around Hamilton--are south of Auckland.I am only guessing, but I think the new Hamilton Mission will take 7 stakes from the Auckland Mission. It may take a district from the Wellington Stake. I think the Auckland Mission will retain 14 stakes, with each of the other two missions having 7 stakes.
Anyone know where the Hamilton boundaries are yet? Wellington loosing any area or is this primarily an Auckland split?
