Not a bus ministry but a walking ministry

Bro. Jason has been doing great here.  He has already been a big help.  He asked me if he could leave a little early on Sunday morning and walk around and bring kids with him to church.  We have two young men, both whom want to be in the Bible College, finish a discipleship course last week.  So I thought, I would invite them for some pizza and coke, because they worked hard.

We were talking about evangelism and Jason told them about bus ministry.  They said that was good.  I told them, we don’t have any buses but we can do something similar.  On Saturday, we can visit and meet some kids.  Ask them if the want to come to church.  Then, tell them to be ready and we will meet them on Sunday morning in front of their house.  They will walk with us, as we pick up the rest of the kids.  Then we will walk to church.  We will learn their names and learn about them.  We will show them love and compassion and that we are interested in their life.  Most of the time, their parents don’t even have much interest in their lives.  We will try to became their friend and mentor.  After many weeks, we will hopefully be able to gain an open door with their parents because they see that we love their children.

Mamadou told me that was a great idea.  I asked him if he wanted to start with Jason this Saturday and he said sure.  Praise God for a willing young man and a new ministry.

    Praise God for Jason’s heart to reach people with the gospel. I could think of know better place to be and learn from a missionary with such a tremindous heart to reach the people of Burkina Faso.
