Where in the World is Benin?

Dear Elder Allred,

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  You are assigned to labor in the Benin Cotonou Mission... You will prepare to preach the gospel in the French language.

As soon as JD read his call, we started searching on our iPhones trying to figure out where Benin was. When he couldn't even pronounce it we all knew that it was going to be a long way from home. We never dreamed he would be going to Africa.
