so this actually happened about 2 weeks ago, and i didn't mention it because i didn't want to alarm anyone, but i hear it made the news back in the states, so here's a link to the story. there has only been one beheading in benin, but it happened to be in the village where my friend sarah lives. she's a peace corps volunteer. luckily, she was visiting cotonou, safe and sound... but she is back there now, so please pray for sarah's peace of mind. and safety. and a good start to the school year.
on the bright side, it's a very beautiful day in benin today!
