This church was delayed in the beginning: due to Dave’s death, Pastor Josue led the evangelism to plant this church over Christmas vacation. Pastor Xavier is doing a wonderful job leading this church. The church has been meeting between two buildings with a makeshift roof over it. The lively worship team has drawn children who play in the open space behind! They are hearing the Word of God without even attending church!
A Proclaimer, a solar rechargeable device from the organization Faith Comes by Hearing, in Albuquerque, NM, has really blessed this church. It shares the Word in the native language of Gun: it has been very exciting for the people to hear the Word in their own language and is a wonderful teaching tool! Thank you Faith Comes by Hearing, for this wonderful gift!
As of Easter, 2016 a church built for this growing congregation has opened its doors.
Adjarra is near the border with Nigeria and there is a large influx of Muslims coming into Benin, seeking a safer place to live. Please be praying that this church can interact in positive ways with these families and love them into knowing Jesus!
