Church Announces New Missions in Africa, Asia

Originally posted on Mormon Newsroom. 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints today announced the formation of three new missions: the Democratic Republic of the Congo Mbuji-Mayi Mission, the Nigeria Owerri Mission and the Vietnam Hanoi Mission.

 

Each of these three new missions will be created by realigning boundaries of existing missions and will be operational on or before July 1, 2016. The Democratic Republic of the Congo Mbuji-Mayi Mission will be created from a division of the Democratic Republic of the Congo Kinshasa and Democratic Republic of the Congo Lubumbashi missions. The Nigeria Owerri Mission will be created from a division of the Nigeria Port Harcourt Mission.

 

The Vietnam Hanoi Mission will be created from the Cambodia Phnom Penh Mission, which for several years has included Vietnamese-speaking missionaries who serve in Vietnam. Often called branch builders in Vietnam, missionaries in the Vietnam Hanoi Mission will continue to strengthen local members and branches. President Lewis Hassell, who has been serving in Vietnam as part of the Cambodia Phnom Penh Mission since May 2015, will preside over the new mission. He will be accompanied by his wife, Sister Mary Bliss Hassell.
