New Mission to be Created in Ghana
Missionaries serving in the Ghana Accra Mission report that the mission will divide this summer to create the new Ghana Accra West Mission. The Ghana Accra Mission will likely be renamed the Ghana Accra East Mission. Currently the Ghana Accra Mission has six stakes and four districts and services the entire Accra Metropolitan Area, Volta Region, and most of Eastern Region. The dividing of the mission may result in expanded LDS outreach in Volta Region where only one branch operates in Ho and the opening of new units in the Accra area. The Church created the Ghana Accra Mission in 1985. Addional missions were organized in Cape Coast (2005) and Kumasi (2012). With four missions by this summer, Ghana will be one of the most reached African countries with an average of six million people per mission.
