First district to be created in Cameroon

Missionaries report that this Sunday the first district of the Church in Cameroon will be organized in Yaounde.  It is unclear whether the new district will just include the four branches in Yaounde or also the two branches in Douala.  The Church has experienced steady growth in Cameroon over the past decade as membership has increased from slightly over 100 to over 1,000 today and from a single branch to six.  Currently the Church in Cameroon has the second most members of any country without a stake or district after Botswana.

Prospects appear highly favorable for the organization of a separate LDS mission in Cameroon in the near future, although there have been no formal plans announced by the Church.
