New stake created in Nicaragua

It appears that the July recess the General Authorities are on this year did not prevent the creation of a new stake last week in Nicaragua. I will leave it up to Matthew Martinich to report on the significance of this stake creation, including the units involved. But it is awesome to hear about that, and in my mind, it strengthens the notion that Nicaragua may get a temple sooner rather than later, especially as this is the first stake created in that nation in 8 years (though a district and Nicaragua's second mission were both created in 2010). I am keeping an eye out on developments in this regard, and will pass along any additional news as I receive it. For now, any comments are welcome, if you are able to make them. If not, let me know. Thanks.
