BENIN: Destroyed Church Rebuilt and Reopened

Update on Post from 14 March 2023.

On 10 January 2023, in a small town in central Benin, a group of voodooists burned down a church when Christians refused to honour local idols. Benin is considered the birthplace of voodoo, and the country celebrates National Voodoo Day on January 10 each year. Occult practices, which include worshipping idols, sacrificing animals and wearing special talismans to ward off evil, are widespread.

Now with VOM’s help, the church has been rebuilt and reopened!

The church’s pastor is thankful that the house of worship is open and that his congregation has a place to meet. He asks that Christians pray for more people in the village to be set free from the bondage of voodoo and that the congregation will be strengthened regardless of persecution.
