Last weekend, the Church announced the creation of a new mission headquartered in Wyoming. The Wyoming Mormon Trail Mission was organized on January 16th from a division of the Colorado Fort Collins, Montana Billings, South Dakota Rapid City Missions. Although boundaries for the new mission have not been announced, it appears that the mission will include several stakes in central Wyoming as evidenced by the mission being organized from three different missions. The new mission will have a strong emphasis on Martin's Cove and the Mormon Trail in proselytizing efforts - possibly in a manner similar to the Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission. The mission president for the new mission is the former director of the Mormon Handcart Historic Site. The new mission is the Church's first mission to be headquartered in Wyoming.
