Results from the new church plant

Thanks so much for your prayers for the newest church plant in Burkina Faso.  Pastor Konate gave me the results of the evangelistic campaign.

Close to 50 people, from the existing churches, gave their time to help the new church plant.

40 people made professions of faith during the evangelisation, conference, and first service.

11 people came for the first service (not including the pastor and his family).

Pastor Zachary is going to visit all of those who made professions of faith.

What a blessing to see how God is working.  I encouraged our churches in Africa to help one another.  I told the pastors if they really want to see God do something great in Burkina Faso that they would  have to work together, get involved, support new or struggling churches, and let God use them to do this great work, not to just rely on the missionaries to do this.  I think this was a good picture of the Burkinabe believers desire to see the God of Heaven do something great.

Here are some pictures of the evangelistic efforts, conference and first service.
