Faith promise

What a blessed day! God moved in the services today, and we had four saved. One young lady named Salie has been coming almost since we started the church at Cissin. I was always unsure of her salvation, but she told us she was saved. She hardly ever misses a church service. During his message, Pastor Ake said that he had a baptized member come to him one day saying she wasn’t sure of her salvation, and that day, she trusted Christ. Salie said she was baptized at 12 but didn’t really understand what she was doing. She gave her life to Christ this morning. We were overjoyed.

Tonight was a great victory for our church. As you know, we are having our first missions conference. We have attempted to teach faith promise. I know of only two other African churches that have done this. I am sure there are more but of the 50-60 that I know about there are only 2 that give faith promise. I decided I would be happy with a minimum of $40 as our debut. I pledged $10, so I thought the church might give $30. We had 32 people pledge. That was great, and they pledged $90 a month. That is absolutely amazing. I told them that I believe that a lot of what we want to accomplish will be centered around our obedience to give to missions.

    Keith, praise God for the wonderful news out of West Africa. It is wonderful to see how things are progressing and how God is using your family. We are praying that you would find leaders amongst your men over there to train. I am amazed at how the work is growing. God bless you real good.

    This is such great news. It’s amazing seeing God work in the hearts of the people in Burkina Faso. Keep setting the example.
