Stake Discontinued in Arizona

A stake was discontinued in Mesa, Arizona last Sunday.  The Mesa Arizona West stake included only four wards due to recent ward consolidations and the stake was combined with the neighboring Chandler Arizona Alma Stake.  Members in the area report that virtually the entire population of the former stake resides in low-income housing and that the area has become increasingly more industrialized within resent years resulting in many active members moving elsewhere. 

There are now 94 stakes in Arizona.
