In 1974, the Wilmington Delaware Stake of Zion* was organized.
Even though the Church was organized nearby in New York,
it took 144 years years to establish a stake in Delaware.
On April 15, 2012, the Wilmington Delaware Stake was split
and the Dover Delaware Stake was created.
In only took 38 years to get two stakes in Delaware!
I'm so happy.
I love Delaware.
And I love my church.
And I love the Latter-day Saints in Delaware.
I love it all.
*A stake is an administrative unit of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints composed of a number of congregations in a relatively close geographical area.
