We have been assigned to go to Nkawkaw to church on Sundays.  There are two branches in Nkawkaw and there are three branches in Konongo.  They have their own district and so they have a district president and counselors that preside over the district.  We are going up there to support them when the Stake is divided and Konongo with be put in the Stake leaving the two Nkawkaw branches under the mission again.  They are opening a new branch up the mountain by Nkawkaw and after the Stake division they become a district again.  All this takes time so we are just there to support the leaders and the missionaries.  We will probably only go twice a month since it is a l 1/2 to 2 hour drive. The first branch starts and 8:30 a.m. and the second branch starts at 10:00 a.m.  If we stay until the end it is at least 1:00 p.m. before we can start for home.  It makes for a really long Sunday, but once we get there it is worth is because we enjoy these branches.  They speak a lot of English and we appreciate that.
