Growth



This past 10 days has been a time where the MTC has reflected on growth of the Church in Africa.
With 200 missionaries in house we are the largest group ever to be trained together to preach the Gospel in Africa. We come from 22 different nations around the globe. We learned from our early youth in over 50 languages and dialects. We have come together with one purpose in our hearts, "to bring others unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel"

















Four days after arrival we were blessed to have Elder And Sister Bednar visit to dedicate the new MTC

Opens in new win












The Choir sang a most rousing rendition of Israel Israel God is Calling




Public Officials attended including the Mayor of Accra





The Architects and Construction Team joined for the Ceremony


 The Sampson Sisters and their Brother put their papers in at different times but all got there call at the same time.




 The Missionaries then went across the courtyard for lunch. Many of their Mission Presidents were here for the Dedication and a Mission President Seminar. They found and sat with the Missionaries that will come to their Missions in a couple of weeks.
