What stake are you in, Jon? If you look at your stake map on www.gatheringofisrael.com (and drill down to the appropriate level; the Atlas is on the left hand side of the main page), you can see the wards (black squares) and branches (yellow squares) I have as per the date indicated on the map. If there are updates, could you let me know, and I'll update the map. Thanks.
