A new district was created in Ghana on September 20th. The Konongo Ghana District was created from the Nkawkaw Ghana District and includes three branches, two of which are in Konongo. When the Kumasi Ghana Stake was organized in 1998 there was a ward in Konongo. The ward was divided into two branches and included later in the Nkawkaw Ghana District. The Nkawkaw Ghana District was quite large, with around 10 branches. This is a likely reason for the new district's creation. The new district brings the total of districts in Ghana to six. There are also seven stakes in Ghana.
We will likely see new stakes created in Ghana in the near future in Accra and Takoradi. The number of mission branches in Ghana has also recently increased. We may see additional districts in Ghana created in Axim, Daboasi and Mankessim.
