Coordination – Weekly Inspiring Image

Making foufou in Benin is not a one person task! This team of women are beating yam pulp with incredible coordination. Foufou is the staple food of many West African nations – and Benin, a slice of Africa between Togo and Nigeria, is no exception. There are approx 52 unique languages spoken in Benin, 29 of these without any Scriptures available in their heart language. And Christians in Benin aren’t waiting for someone else to take this on: they are actively recruiting and financially supporting their own missionaries for the work of Bible translation in their nation. This is a significant testimony to the coordination and team work of the Beninese church. Praise God! Please pray for the work of the church in Benin.

  1. Great picture! I tried pounding yams when I lived in Benin years ago. It’s much harder than it looks! I love how they coordinate their pounding. It’s beautiful to watch and hear. And delicious afterwards with a peanut sauce.
