Missionaries serving the in the Cape Verde Praia Mission report that the Fogo Cape Verde District became a stake yesterday. No data is available on which branches became wards and I will post this information when it becomes available.
In 2012, the Church organized its first stake in Cape Verde in Praia and in 2013 a second stake was organized in Mindelo. Missionaries report plans for a district to be formed on Sal sometime in the near future. The Church has experienced rapid growth in Cape Verde since the start of this decade notwithstanding stagnant congregational growth occurring during most of the 1990s and 2000s. Prospects for a temple in Cape Verde appear more likely due to remote location, strong local leadership in Praia, the recent creation of additional stakes, and recent rapid growth.
