The Komenda Branch

Today, President Nelson and I traveled to Kissi to divide the branch, creating a new branch in Komenda.

We had a nice turnout for the meeting, which was held in the Kissi Chapel.

The Komenda president, 1st Counselor and Clerk.

We understand the Abakrampa Ward was organized today as well.  The missionaries there promised to send me some pictures and we will post those next week.

We spent most of the week (Monday-Thursday) in the hills above Accra at the Peduase Valley Resort for the 2017 Interim Mission President Seminar.

We drove to Accra, then joined the other mission presidents and their companions for the bus ride up the mountain.

Elder Vinson, our Area President, directed the seminar.

This is President and Sister Heid.  They serve in the Ghana Accra Mission and began their missions the same time we did.

President and Sister Kaku also started with us.  We sat next to them the whole week of the Seminar for New Mission Presidents before coming to Ghana.  They are from Cape Coast and serving in Nigeria.

President and Sister Cosgrave serve in the Ghana Kumasi Mission north of us.

There was a band in the restaurant the last night of the seminar playing American oldies.  Of course, Sister Stevenson had to dance.  The next day on the bus, the French speaking group were saying, "Jibber jabber, jibber jabber Stevenson jibber jabber.  When they noticed us looking at them in curiosity, they explained that Sister Stevenson was a great dancer.  I asked what they thought about my dancing.  "We said nothing about you."  

On Friday, we were back to work with the Yamoransa Zone Conference.

The zone leaders got a deal on individual pizza.  It was a nice change from the usual rice and chicken.

The missionaries were happy.

After the zone conference, I interviewed the Abakrampa District.

These missionaries serve in Abura Dunkwa, Abakrampa and Asebu.

On Saturday, the rest of the Yamoransa Zone came to the mission home for their interviews.
