Last Sunday a new stake was created in Bolivia. The El Alto Bolivia Litoral Stake was organized from the El Alto Bolivia Stake and includes the following five wards: The Brasil, Dieciseis de Febrero, Litoral, Río Seco, and Unión Wards. The new stake becomes the ninth stake in the El Alto/La Paz metropolitan area. There are now 27 stakes and 10 districts in Bolivia.
A new stake was recently created in Guatemala. The Escuintla Guatemala Stake was organized from the Escuintla Guatemala District. The Church once operated a stake in Escuintla between 1988 and 1994 but discontinued the stake and downgraded it to a district. It is unclear whether the Church will consider the new stake as a new stake creation or a reinstated stake. No information is available on which branches became wards. I will post this information under comments once it is available. There are now 42 stakes and 18 districts in Guatemala.
The Church created a new stake in Texas two Sundays ago. The Round Rock Texas East Stake was created from the Round Rock Texas Stake and includes the following seven wards and two branches: The Georgetown, Old Settlers, Pflugerville, Round Rock, Serenada, Stony Point, and Taylor Wards and the Palm Valley (Spanish) and Rockdale Branches.
