As our work in Haiti continues, a natural overflow of that ministry became apparent to church leadership as doors were opened in Burkina Faso, a french-speaking nation in West Africa. Burkina Faso is a country of close to 20 million, with the majority of the population being Muslim (53%). It is also one of the most financially impoverished countries in the world.
We have chosen to partner with Global Hope Network International and adopt a village (“KB”) in Burkina Faso. The long-term goal is to see gospel transformation as we build a partnership with this village based on mutual trust and shared respect. We will work with KB in five key areas: water, food, wellness, education, and income. While these physical improvements are happening, we are also working with a local pastor and church planter who is sharing Christ with the villagers as he and his wife live and work among them. The vision can then spread to surrounding West Africa villages as KB becomes a training hub for Transformational Community Development.
Consider being a prayer partner for a Haiti or Burkina Faso team. Receive regular prayer updates and commit to praying for teams that go to these countries.
As a church, we have committed annual funding for Transformational Community Development in the village of KB. We are also helping to find another sustainable water source and establishing a goat loan program.
