Update on Newly Created Church Units
Hello, all! Over the last two days, I have been impressed by the reported number of unit changes. In addition to those stakes or districts that were created during the annual July recess of the General Authorities (which is somewhat abnormal), numerous wards and branches have also been created. For those updates, click here (which is the LDS Church Temples page devoted to such changes). And you can depend on thorough analysis of such developments to be featured here (on the LDS Church Growth Blog). I am extremely sensitive about the matter of infringing on other people's territory, and those two sources are lovingly maintained by people I respect who are experts on those things. I will not take that prestige away from them. At a later time, once I am able to crunch the numbers, I will offer projections about the potential number of Church units by the end of this year, which is within my prerogative to do. For now, thank you for the privilege of your time, and may the Lord bless each and every one of you. I will be back soon. Until that time, all the best.
