Ever since the ChurchÂ announced last week that it would beÂ amalgamatingÂ several missions around the world, the Bloggernacle lit up with several discussions regarding former missionaries of those missions losing their mission.
My mission is one of the affected ones. In my case, however, my mission is being split. Geographically, at least three-quarters of it is being turned into the Utah St. George Mission. Granted, my mission alreadyÂ lostÂ pieces to the Nevada Las Vegas Mission and the New Mexico Farmington Mission.
It looks like four of my areas (Kanab, Wellington, Pleasant Grove, and Provo) will remain in the UPM, while Kanab (my third area) will be in the USGM. Mesquite, my fifth area, transferred to the NLVM several years ago.
Apparently, the UPM had the highest number of stakes of any mission in the world.
I wonder if this is one more step to creating a St. George Temple Mission.
