Marianna's time working with Lynn and Mike Hutchinson
This past Saturday-Wednesday I took a trip with Mike and a couple of our Togolese friends/colleagues to Benin. We made plans for a team from a church in Benin to come to Togo House’s first week of camp here in Togo, followed by the Togo House team going to Benin to help with their week of camp after camp here is finished.
Our team consisted of Mike, myself, Daniel (the Togo House director), Bruno (who is highly engaged with Togo House’s work) and our driver. We got to meet with the pastor/missionary there, attend church, visit a few ministry areas and partners in the community and see a good bit of Natitingou, Benin. We had a blast!
I’ve tried to explain most of the pictures below with headings and captions. If you have questions or comments, feel free to share! There’s a lot happening in these pictures and it’s hard to explain it all, so I’d be glad to share more with those who are interested in specific things!
Just a few views along the road (I didn’t take many, but these are a couple things we saw throughout Togo and Benin between Lomé and Natitingou):
Things we saw in and around Natitingou while we were there:
We went exploring up the mountain a bit the first afternoon we were there:
The church owns a piece of land where they grow crops. We got to go visit it and see what they are doing:
We then visited a place where one of the church attendee’s father had begun building a resort before money ran out. It was very pretty, just unfinished:
We ate lunch at Pastor’s house one day (I don’t have pictures inside or of lunch):
One day we went to see the waterfall up the mountain. It was so beautiful:
