Paramount Chief of District in Ghana Asks to Meet with Church Leaders

It's always encouraging to see how the Church is being recognized throughout the world.

The Paramount Chief of Manya Krobo Traditional Area, Nene Sakite, II requested a meeting with Elder Marcus B. Nash and other leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at his palace in Krobo Odumase, Ghana. The Paramount Chief is known as a Konor in the local dialect.

“Each morning as I take my walk, I see signs for your churches. I see your missionaries walking our streets,” commented the Paramount Chief. “Your members go about doing good in our communities. It makes me wonder why we have never met.”

Elder Nash, First Counselor in the Africa West Area Presidency, (the senior governing body of the Church in West Africa) reflected on a time years earlier when he and his wife expected to meet and become acquainted with the friends his children associated with.
