We arrived in Benin on August 18.

|We learned about the history, culture and arts of Benin and made flags|
with our elementary students to wave on arrival day.
|The arrival ceremony was very special!|

Thanks so much to each of you who make it possible for me to serve as a Grade 1 teacher with Mercy Ships. Your prayers, encouragement and financial support are essential to me thriving here.
