The Church was first registered in Zambia in 1992. Now, 23 years later, it finally has a full stake--which means there will be a Stake Patriarch and other blessings available to the 2100 Saints there.
The Lusaka Zambia Stake was created on 15 March 2015 during a
special conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
held at the meetinghouse on Nangwenya Road in Lusaka. The Lusaka Stake,
the first in Zambia, is an executive unit comprised of approximately
2100 members in seven congregations within Lusaka.
Church membership in Africa is approaching 425,000 with more than 1300
congregations. Worldwide, there are 15 million members in over 29,000
congregations. Johannesburg, South Africa is the closest LDS temple to
Lusaka. Of the 25 countries in the Africa Southeast Area, as of 1
January 2015, there were 39 Stakes. 14 are located in South Africa, 12
in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 2 in Zimbabwe, and various others.
Now there is one Stake of Zion in Zambia!
