Very interesting that the new Curitiba mission is South, since the mission stretches mostly east and west. I'm not aware of any proselyting that went on south of the Curitiba metro area when I served there in 1995 - 1997. I thought East or West would have made more sense. Still, there are around 10 stakes in Curitiba itself to be divided up, and I'm sure some of the southern Parana' cities that had no church presence or were part of the Florianopolis Mission will be in this new mission.
