The engagement between Christians in Benin and Mennonites in Europe and
North America reported here was built on initiative that originated in
Benin. Further, it was nurtured through an investment on three
continents to building meaningful relationships. This commitment
provided the bedrock for developing partnership arrangements that
respected the subjectivity of each of the partners and advanced the
dignity and accountability of all those involved.
The fruit of
this engagement has bolstered the faith of all who had the privilege of
sharing our modest gifts, and reminded us that we must never “despise
the day of small beginnings.” Every engagement in relationship and in
the journey of building authentic partnership can (and most likely will)
grow to bear fruit that may someday surprise us. No investment we make
today, however modest, is insignificant.
