Pastor Godwin Emmanuel started ‘Love Fire Ministry’ 11 months ago in the African country of Benin. His aim has always been to serve and love on the community.

That’s what he was doing two Sundays, when he was on his way to help distribute food items to poor members of his church. While on route, he came across of group of men who were pushing their car across the road. He stopped to let them pass, when they suddenly attacked him. They shot him in the chest and in the stomach…Pastor Godwin died.

The church was shocked but as one member says, “God will give us the strength to go through it.”

Let’s remember to pray for Pastor Godwin’s congregation, and for all of our brothers and sisters in Benin.
