The Church created a new stake in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas on March 1st. The Ciudad Victoria Mexico North Stake was organized from a division of the Ciudad Victoria Mexico Stake. The new stake includes the following five wards and one branch: the Carrera, Flores, Libertad, Tamaulipas, and Villas Wards and the Padilla Branch. Prior to the organization of the new stake only one stake operated in the city which was organized in 1976.
There are now 230 stakes and 37 districts in Mexico.
