The Church has organized four new missions—in Florida, Haiti, South Africa, and Ohio.

The Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission is a reactivation of a mission that was discontinued in 1983 when the West Indies Mission was created. The original Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission, opened in 1979, covered all of the Caribbean. Officially in operation on July 1, under President Claud D. Mangum, the reactivated Florida Fort Lauderdale Mission includes within its boundaries three stakes taken from the Florida Tampa Mission—Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach—and the Bahamas, taken from the West Indies Mission. Some 2.7 million people live within its boundaries.

The remaining West Indies Mission now covers the Lesser Antilles, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman. Nearly five million English-, French-, and Spanish-speaking people live within its boundaries, including about 540 members in the Kingston Jamaica District and island branches.

Missionaries of the new Haiti Mission will work among some five million French- and Creole-speaking people of that country. There are currently more than 550 members in the Port-au-Prince Haiti District. The new mission, also taken from the West Indies Mission, will begin operation August 1. James S. Arrigona has been called as its president.

The new South Africa Cape Town Mission includes about two thousand Church members and some 6.5 million residents in the west part of South Africa.

G. Phillip Margetts, who has been serving as president of the South Africa Johannesburg Mission, will be its president. Afrikaans, English, and several African languages are spoken in the mission. The new mission, in operation as of July 1, was taken from the South Africa Johannesburg Mission, organized originally in 1903. That mission now has more than ten thousand members.

The new Ohio Akron Mission, also in operation as of July 1, was taken from the Ohio Cleveland Mission. It covers the northeast corner of Ohio, including the historic Kirtland area. There are nearly six thousand members among the more than three million people living within the mission boundaries. Ohio also contains the Ohio Columbus Mission and parts of the Kentucky Louisville and West Virginia Charleston Missions.

In addition to these announcements, the First Presidency has called the following brethren as mission presidents. Their assignments begin this month.
