Dodji Village in Benin, Africa

Several years ago, Pastor Washington became aware of the “adopt-a-village” project through COMINAD. After much prayer, we adopted the village of Dodji in Benin, Africa as our village.

Benin is a small country in west Africa. It is one of the countries where Africans were captured, sold into slavery, and shipped to America some 300 years ago. Many of the descendants of those slaves are seeking forgiveness for what their forefathers did. They are asking the sons and daughters of those slaves to forgive them and be reconciled with them. They want to know they are forgiven for the deeds of their fathers.

While most of the descendants of those slaves, who are living in America, are living quite well, many of the Africans in Benin are not. Some live in villages where poverty is widespread. The basic everyday needs are most difficult to come by.

Each year, Pastor Washington, along with others from Metro and the United Assemblies of Detroit, make a trip to Dodji. Recently, funds were collected and went to the building of a well for the village. This has allowed the village to have clean water.
