Benin: The Tribal Messiah Blessing
FFWPU Benin, Serge GUELI: From May 26 to June 4, 2016, 44 previously married couples received blessing of marriage. During this time at the headquarters there were more participants.
In Local areas and villages (such as Agbanou in Alla District), the top officials participated at our blessing event and contributed in mobilizing of couples for the blessing as well.
The local mayor personally encouraged the couples who joined the Blessing from her office. She declared that she has received many NGOs during her work, but FFWPU is different. She promised to mobilize the all 13 villages under her administration to join the Blessing. Even at the beginning of the event she danced with the participants.
