Lives can be touched for Christ in the small towns and villages in northern Benin in many ways that may seem trivial to those of us who live in modern economies and cultures. A mother can be given practical advice for the care of her expectant baby that gives her and her child a much improved opportunity to survive. Basic information on personal hygiene, nutrition, or children's health opens countless opportunities to share Christ with individuals in need.
Family care information is always well-received on a personal level and can lead to long-term relationships. Other developmental care and education from a central medical clinic can have a large impact on individuals, families, and entire communities. The Benin Clinic Project may begin with small steps, but our objective is to use a broad spectrum of means to show the love of Christ to all people in towns, villages, and tribal peoples of northern Benin.
