Churches Profoundly Impacted in Benin

This year, DRIME Benin is celebrating their ten-year milestone! We took the opportunity to connect with a few Beninese pastors who have seen their church communities grow and be strengthened by their partnerships with our local DRIME teams.

What's Happening in the DRIME World 

  • Due to the global pandemic, all DRIME teams have put street ministry on pause for the time being. Our teams will be looking at creative ways to continue serving their cities with the love and hope of Christ, in a way that is appropriate for their respective regions.
  • The Africa Regional Summit in early March was a great success. DRIME leaders from eight different cities were greatly inspired through learning from guest speakers, connecting with one another, and doing ministry together.
  • The Canada/Asia Summit in Ontario ended early due to health and travel concerns for our participants. We will be continuing the Summit online over the next few weeks.

Global Prayer Requests 

  • As you feel led, pray for individuals, families and churches who have been affected by COVID-19. Pray that God would lead political and spiritual leaders to make wise and loving decisions.
  • Pray for discernment and creativity for our teams and staff as we look for new ways to help people encounter Jesus.

Evangelism Tip:
Let God Lead

In a time of uncertainty, many people are looking for answers. As believers, we have an eternal hope that is worth talking about. As you prepare to connect with others about faith, take time to bring your feelings and questions to God first, remembering that none of us have walked through this season before; none of us are experts. In this posture of understanding & listening, God's peace and love will flow through you, and the Holy Spirit will guide your steps. He is with you!
A Note from Lillian

As you likely know, DRIME teams do ministry in busy places in their towns, wherever there's the best foot traffic. So much of what DRIME does is about creating spaces where it's easy to have conversations about life and faith and Jesus.  It's as though each DRIME team make a very regular space into something sacred, where the ease of conversation turning into something very meaningful happens while they are present. 
In this season, our way of doing ministry will have to change.
We feel strongly that we aren't to just coast through these weeks (or months) in anticipation of it being over but that God has something in store for each of us and for the DRIME ministry now, in the current reality. 
Would you pray for us and our teams as they creatively think about how they can best serve their communities in person and online in this time? 
We're so grateful to you for walking with us over the years. May God continue to give you His peace and presence as you navigate your new normal in this season.
Much love and care to you and your family on behalf of all the DRIME staff.
- Lillian Frederiksen, International Director of DRIME
