A new stake was created in Mexico last Sunday. The Córdoba México Stake was created from the Orizaba México Stake and includes the Córdoba, Escamela, Huilango, Nuevo Córdoba, and Ojo de Agua Wards and the Huatusco Branch. The Church in Mexico has experienced stagnant congregational growth for the past several years but has had at least a couple new stakes organized each year during this period. This suggests that member activity and convert retention rates remain problematic but there may be some progress in leadership development.
There are now 226 stakes and 36 districts in Mexico.
