Last Sunday a new stake was created in Tonga.
The Nuku'alofa Tonga Malapo Stake was organized from the Nuku'alofa Tonga Mu'a and Nuku'alofa Vaina Stakes and includes the following six wards and one branch: The Alakifonua, Holonga, Malapo,
Pelehake, Vaini 3rd, and Vaini 4th wards and the Longoteme Branch. The neighboring Nuku'alofa Tonga South Stake was also realigned and several wards were transferred to the Nuku'alofa Tonga Vaina Stake. The new stake becomes the third new stake created in Tonga since 2008.

There are now 19 stakes and two districts in Tonga notwithstanding a tiny population of 106,000.
