The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the creation of three new stakes:
14. Accra Ghana Kaneshie - April 22nd, 2012
15. Accra Ghana Tesano - April 22nd, 2012
16. Drammen Norway - April 22nd, 2012
Two LDS stakes were in the city of Accra in Ghana in Africa. A temple was built and dedicated in Accra in 2004. There are now 50,000 members and 10 stakes in Ghana. Ghana has as many stakes as France, Paraguay and Spain. These are the first new stakes in Ghana in 2012, one stake was created in 2011.
Norway created it's second stake. The only other stake is in Oslo, created in 1977. Norwegian members must travel to Stockholm, Sweden for a temple. There are also temples in Copenhagen, Denmark and Helsinki Finland, so perhaps a temple will be built in Oslo soon.
There are now 2,962 Stakes and the Church is on track to create the 3,000 Stake this year !
