Jean Sagbo Houeto, Benin — Protection
Beloved in the Lord, we greet you in the faithful and precious Name of our Lord Jesus-Christ who saved us with his precious blood shed on the cross. Family: Florence and I thank the heavenly father who takes care of us with our four children. We are all doing well apart from some health difficulties due to malaria, but we thank the Lord for his intervention in the health of each of us. We also thank him for the protection he has given us against the covid 19 pandemic which still persists here in Benin. We are praying for you too, asking our God to keep you safe from this disease. Ministry: We thank God that the Sunday services have continued in the houses despite the decision by the political authorities to close churches, to curb the spread of Covid 19. Thus, our temple remained closed three months but we regularly continued the worship of God in houses. But my family and I continued to spread the gospel. As a result, with the help of the Holy Spirit, a family joined us when churches reopened. And, since the reopening of churches, I also continue to conduct Bible study sessions, twice a month in Cotonou and twice a month in Calavi. Prayer requests: ? Continue praying that God opens the doors of the city of Porto-Novo to the gospel of Jesus Christ; ? Pray that God strength our ministry, Florence and I: our desire is that God equips and strengthens us in this ministry; ? Pray that God protects me when I travel, to teach in the churches of Cotonou and Calavi, which are 22 miles to 35 miles away from my home, I travel to those churches by motorbike; ? Pray also that God will provide for our needs, my family and I. ? : until then, I have no church salary. I just have a flat rate of 130 $ per month. ? We also need a film projection device to show evangelism films. Pray that the Lord provides for the purchase of this device which costs 600 $ ? Pray that god protect us from contamination from the covid 19 pandemic, as we are praying for you. Together, let’s win Porto-Novo to Christ! God bless you!
