Kickoff to the new church plant

Yesterday was the kickoff to the new church plant on the north side of Ouagadougou.  Honestly, I am little disappointed that I am not there, but I am also thrilled that in my absence another work is being started.

I talked to Pastor Konate yesterday morning.  He told me that there were over 40 people from the other church that have come together to witness and invite people to the night service.  They started at 9 am, stopped for lunch and then they continued into the afternoon.  Last night, they had a special evangelistic service.  I talked to Pastor Konate again last night, and he told me that they had 13 adults that had already made professions of faith, and they weren’t yet finished with the service.

They are doing the same thing today.  Please pray that the power of God will be present and that many will see their need for Jesus.  The church will have its first service this Sunday.

I am amazed that over 40 people have come together to start a new work.

I am amazed that God has allowed us to start the fifth work in Burkina Faso.

I am amazed that God has given us some great leaders.

I am amazed that God lets me be apart of the most exciting thing in the world.

He is good.
