Suzy & Fidel Baldwin-Noutehou

A career missionary since 1999, Suzy first served the Otammari people of Benin. Now, she and her husband, Fidel, are serving the people groups of the Pendjari region of Benin.

Suzy Baldwin-Noutehou started working with the Otammari people in Benin, West Africa, in 1999. She learned their culture, then how to present the gospel in the context of their and other area cultures. She used friendship evangelism, medical care and health education. She also worked for many years with Ulrike Baur, another AFM missionary.

During that time, Fidel Noutehou was also learning and doing evangelism in another denomination under the mentorship of his uncle. In 2007, God brought Fidel to Natitingou and into contact with Suzy and other SDA members. Fidel would come and borrow books from Suzy, and that was their only contact for seven years.

In late 2013, God convicted Fidel of the Sabbath truth, and he joined the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Over the next seven months, God impressed Fidel and then Suzy that they were to be married and become partners in the work. In 2014, Fidel and Suzy wed and moved to the Pendjari region of Benin to start a new AFM project. They live in a small village outside of Tanguieta, on a farm where they have an agriculture ministry. Their work includes planting churches and mentoring local leaders from the various village church groups.

Now, several church groups have been planted in two of the larger people groups and one church group in the main town near Tanguieta.

The Scorpion Bite

Satan is always working to destroy and often uses dreams and other methods to attack brothers and sisters. But God is faithful to deliver when we call on Him for help. He is always the Victor.
