Dear Parents, Leaders, and Friends,
After many years of dedicated service on the part of missionaries, members, and church leaders, the first Stake of Zion in Benin was organized on Sunday April 24th under the direction of Elder Vern P. Stanfill of the First Quorum of the Seventy, and Elder Koranteng of the Africa West Area Presidency.
On this memorable occasion more than 1500 people gathered at Palais des Congrès (a convention center) in Cotonou to participate in this historic event. Elder Stanfill and his wife also took advantage of their presence to meet with all of the missionaries in Benin and Togo. Attached you will find photographs taken during these two zone conferences.
We take this opportunity to thank you for your love and constant support that you show to each of our missionaries.
President and sister Morin.
