FYI....according to the Czech Prague mission home page, Elder Joshua Killpack of Firth, Idaho is currently serving in Banska Bystrica (west), Slovakia. This appears to be one of the new cities that has been opened this year in Slovakia. Apparently no branch has yet been formed.

Thanks for the info...I will take Banska Bystrica off the list since missionaries are assigned to the city.

Matt, there are now LDS groups functioning in both Banska Bystrica and Zvolen in Slovakia; both under the jurisdiction of the Zilina Branch. Two missionary sets are residing in Banska Bystrica and a set now assigned to Zvolen. A senior missionary couple also works with both cities. I attended church in Banska Bystrica last month. The missionaries there said that Nitra will soon be opened by the mission, hopefully later this year.
