Evangelism Campagain in Kaya

Kaya is the fifth largest city in Burkina Faso.  God lead Pastor Konaté to leave the capital city, Ouagadougou, where he was my associate pastor, to plant a church in Kaya.  I had planned on leaving Living Water Baptist Church this year in his hands as the pastor.  God had other plans for Pastor Konaté, and it is evident that God is using him in a great way in Kaya.  We arrived on Thursday the 16th of November.  Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night we had an evangelistic campaign.  God really moved over those days and we were able to see about 50 professions of faith.  It was definitely a blessed time.

On Sunday morning, I preached on the new birth.  I used a simple illustration of how Jesus is the mediator between God and man.  By the grace of God, 8 people were born into the family of God.  3 of the 8 were older women.  Each said that they had been in church for a long time but had never heard that they had to receive the Lord personally.  Each said that a pastor laid hands on them and prayed that their sins would be forgiven.  The problem with this is that they tried to rely on another mediator.  Only Jesus saves.  Below are some pictures:

Its hard to see everybody since its dark, but this gives you an idea what we do.

The Sunday morning crowd. God is blessing Pastor Konate and his effort.

These eight were born into the family of God on Sunday Morning.

Tonight, Thursday the 29th, we will begin another evangelism campaign with Pastor Gilbert.  We will hold this in the third largest city in Burkina Faso called Koudougou.  Please pray that souls will be saved.  We will be there through Sunday.
