I JUST found out, they discontinued the Anchorage Alaska Bush District, and their 7 branches will be split among the 3 Anchorage Stakes. This shocked me, but now it makes more sense, when our stake president mention changes that would affect approximately 10,000 church members in Alaska. The Church website hasn't updated the ward/branch lists on our stakes, but I think, our stake would most likely get Nome and Kotzebue. This REALLY surprised me. This means the number of districts in the U.S. is now 11.
