This past week in the LDS Church News it was announced that the Chicago South Mission will be condolidated and combined to make the Illinois Chicago Mission . This will occur this summer! This is being done so missonaries can be assigned to other areas in the world where more additional help is needed. This is bittersweet to me since I was only 6 months out when the mission was split in 1997! Hopefully this change to the Chicagoland area will be for the better!!
