Last Sunday, a new stake was created in Missouri in West Plains from a division of the St Robert Missouri Stake. No information is currently available on whether additional stakes were involved with the creation of the new stake or what units pertain to the new stake. This information will later be posted as a comment to this blog post. There are now 15 stakes in Missouri.
Last Sunday, two new districts were created in Nigeria from a division of the Asaba Nigeria District. The Agbor Nigeria District appears to include two branches (Agbor 1st and Agbor 2nd) whereas the Ogwashi-Nsukwa Nigeria District appears to include five branches (Adonte, Nsukwa, Ogwashi-Uku 1st, Ogwashi-Uku 2nd, and Ogwashi-Uku 3rd). The strategy of the newly organized Nigeria Benin City Mission appears to center on helping each of these districts progress into stakes as opposed to facilitating the original Asaba Nigeria District to become a stake. The realigned Asaba Nigeria District now appears to include just five branches (four in Asaba and one in Illah). There are now 22 stakes and 21 districts in Nigeria.
