We had a wonderful open air meeting

One of the things we love to do here in Burkina Faso is to have open air meetings.  We find a good location not to far from the church and try to gather together as many people as we can.  This has been effective in evangelizing people, getting the name of our church out and all seeing people come to Christ.

Last night and tonight, we had two wonderful services.  There where probably 250 people there last night and about 300 people present tonight.  Our youth put on a biblical skit last night and then we preached the Word of God.  Tonight, we showed a film that our church made about 8 months ago.  Sometimes people think it is easy to do this sort of thing here.  What makes it possible is our people.  They work very hard for the Lord.  I am proud of them.  The youth have been practicing their skit for weeks.  Yesterday and today, we had many people come around three p.m. and go out into the neighborhood and invite people to come.  Another group helped me set everything up and take it down.  Another group dealt with the more than 20 or so that came forward for salvation (Praise the Lord for dealing with people).

Most importantly I am thankful to God.  He has allowed me to be in this great place.  He has called me to be church planter.  He has saved many people and has changed their lives.  He has called men to preach.  He has started 8 churches in Burkina Faso.  He is good.  He is real good.  There is no other way to describe it.  I am truly the most blessed man in the world.
