Merry Christmas from the Benin Cotonou Mission

Dear Missionary Families and Friends,

Season’s Greetings from the Benin Cotonou Mission. This past week our missionaries in Benin celebrated the birth of our Savior by following his example and giving serviceWe met together at the Cotonou Stake Center early in the morning and loaded into buses to leave for Grand Popo. Upon our arrival, we helped paint an orphanage that gives a home to 26 kids. The work your children have done is incredible and will be greatly appreciated for many years. After the service project we had a wonderful dinner which was followed by a performance from each zone. The zones sang hymns and shared scriptures centered on the birth of Jesus Christ. We had a fantastic day together and want you to know that your children are serving diligently this Christmas Season as representatives of him whose birth we celebrate.

Attached are pictures from the activity. We hope you enjoy them.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

With Love,

President and Sister Morin
Benin Cotonou Mission
