New Stake in Guatemala

Last Sunday a new stake was created in Guatemala.  The Antigua Guatemala Stake was organized from the the Chimaltenango Guatemala Stake and includes the following six wards and one branch: The Antigua, Ciudad Vieja, Jocotenango, Parramos, San Lucas 1st, and San Lucas 2nd Wards and the San Pedro Las Huertas Branch.  Unlike most stakes in the country, the Chimaltenango Guatemala Stake has experienced steady congregational growth within the past decade which has necessitated the creation of a new stake.

There are now 41 stakes and 19 districts in Guatemala.

It would seem the New York New York stake is almost big enough to split.
