Benin Bible Institute (BBI) graduates Augustin Eteka, Rémy Gandji and Asaël Houngbedji (in the foreground) joined 90 others in covenanting to faithfully serve the Lord with the skills and knowledge they received during their three years of study. BBI has served the churches of Benin by providing biblical and theological education for three decades. On July 24, 73 men and 17 women from 30 denominations graduated in a ceremony hosted by Eglise Mission Source de Vie (Source of Life Mission Church) in Cotonou, Benin's largest city. This is the ninth three-year cohort to graduate from BBI. The 10th cohort will begin classes Sept. 24.
