About Me

My name is Elfried ADJIN and I’m from Benin. I heard about Mercy Ships from a priest which I am a friend within my church.  What I enjoy in life is learning from others experiences and examples. I had many opportunities in my life and the only way I was satisfied, without having regrets, is by doing what God told me to do. Since then, my choices are made according to God’s will.

During the week-end, I like to spend some time with orphans through the ship’s Mercy Ministry program. Freely I receive, freely I must give.
