Five new stakes have been created. (I previously blogged about the Moscow Russian Stake)
A new stake has been created in Casa Grande Peru, a new Stake from a previous district. This is the first new stake in Peru in 2011. There are now 95 stakes in Peru, which keeps Peru in 4th place behind Mexico, Brazil and the US, and ahead of the Philippines, which has 81 stakes. The Casa Grande Peru stake is slightly closer to the 1986 Lima Peru temple than the 1999 Guayaquil Ecuador Temple, but is very close to the Trujillo, Peru temple site announced in 2008.
A new stake has been created from the Moscow Russia District. See blog entries for this June announcement.
A new stake has been created in Navarrete Dominican Republic, a new Stake from a previous district. This is the first new stake in the Dominican Republic in 2011. There are now 19 stakes in the Dominican Republic, 2 ahead of El Salvador, South Korea, Nigeria and Tonga and 2 behind Honduras with 21.
A new stake has been created in Rio de Janeiro Brazil called the The Rio de Janeiro Engenho de Dentro Stake and another new stake has been created in Sao Paulo Brazil called the Sao Paulo Taboao Stake. These 2 make 3 created in 2011 in Brazil, but I believe one stake may have been discontinued in Brazil as the Church's Directory of Leader's, Organization Totals by country has Brazil at 242 stakes. Brazil has 7 temples including 2 under construction. Brazil with 242 is ahead of Mexcio with 222 stakes. The US has 1,492.
These 4 stakes are all foreign, so there are now 1,445 outside the US (49.3%) and 1,492 in the US for a total of 2,937.
