Training in Cotonou


At the end of January, Ada Babajide, one of our partners in Nigeria, and her team completed the 2nd half of the Passing It On! seminar. 50 people from over 30 ministries and mission agencies participated in this 5-day session. In this seminar, they focused on three transformational values and the power of sharing your story. Ada noted that she was very encouraged by their questions and reflections.

“an intensive, engaging, enlightening, and empowering time”

There are 70 ministers and missionaries on the waiting list to attend future Passing It On! seminars. Praise God!

Ada also mentioned that there are 10 mentor groups that meet weekly utilizing the 40 Days with Jesus resource. In February, 4 new groups started 40 Days with Jesus: Grace through WhatsApp.

There are also 5 French women’s groups and 2 Fong Be women’s groups working through 40 Days with Jesus weekly via WhatsApp. These women previously attended a Leader’s Covenant seminar and decided to continue to learn and grow.

Overall, Ada reports that many leaders who have participated in one of the groups have developed mentoring relationships with people in their community. These resources and Ada’s ministry have a direct impact on the community.

Thank you for your continued support of Ada and the leaders in Cotonou. Please pray for the leaders attending the upcoming Passing It On! seminar in May.
