Togo, West Africa is the birthplace of voodoo.... so as you can imagine it is a pretty dark place. You see generation after generation that is that has been gripped by satan.
The standard tradition in the house hold of a witch doctor is to dedicate there child to the work of satan. You can see generations that are trapped in this cycle and they have no idea that they can have freedom.
Well... that is changing.
Pastor Ben is one of our bold leaders in Togo. He has the privilege of serving his church as the pastor. He is a Gospel sharing machine. Nothing stops him!
In Bens village, there is a feared witch doctor. This is the witch doctor that other witch doctors go to when they aren't able to communicate to the most powerful demons. She is known for her sorcery and one of the darkest souls around.
She would never hear a word of the Gospel let alone invite someone in that believed it.
Ben, led by the Holy Spirit walked into this witchdoctors home and shared the Gospel boldly.
Not only did she listen, she actually invited him to come back and talk about it again.
Through this process, the witch doctors daughter was in the room listening as well and gave her life to Christ. Later on the witchdoctor came to Christ as well and is now living for Jesus.
The witch doctors daughter, Eugene, has been attending the church that Pastor Ben serves. She recently had a newborn baby and held a baby dedication at the church.
