Many of the original African slaves came from Benin. The country is still enslaved by false religions and traditions. Thanks to our church in Cotonou run by Pastor Koudjo, Orphans First is reaching over seventy children, teaching them the Bible and helping them with their educational and material needs. We hope to have a children’s home for some of the most desperate soon – thanks to the contributions of kind sponsors.
Koudjo was mentored by Louis DeMeo, a church planter and pastor (married to Janey DeMeo).
