Donlon’s Parish on AMiA / Ghana Relations

The newsletter of Father Kevin Donlon‘s Church of the Resurrection reports the following about theAM:

The AMIA is now a Missionary Society of approximately 80 parishes.

This is the first time I have seen a number of parishes in recent memory. It seems to be on the high side, but maybe it is right.

Bishop Edmund of Dunkwa on-Offin in Ghana has accepted David [Brookman]. Hopefully he will be ordained in January during Bishop Edmund’s visit. Fr. James Kennaugh has already been given canonical license by Bishop Edmund.

Fr. Kevin discussed the needs of the new Ghana diocese.

I wonder what the relationship of Bishop Edmund and FCA / GAFCON is? The newsletter also gives this biography for the Bishop:
