I wanted to get everyone updated with our next ICT project to Burkina Faso.
I have been talking with Bro. Keith Shumaker over the past several weeks and have some encouraging news. They have been averaging over 100 in Sunday morning services. There have been several accepted Christ as the personal Saviour. Most of these were muslim, but now have a guarantee in heaven forever. An example of how God is moving there is last Sunday morning there was four adults that came from some distance away. These four rode on different motor bikes. After the morning service, they too have accepted Christ as there personal Saviour. God is so good to us. Keith and others have been prayer about a peace of land located inside the city limits. He has a couple of pieces of land out is the suburbs, but the main population is located in the city. A piece of land came available (a lot located in side of the city limits), but the price was around $30,000.00. Bro. Keith had $20,000.00 in the bank, and the people was not budging any on the cost of the lot. The lot was about 3000 SF or so. I talked with Bro. Keith Wednesday night and he said that two lots came available for $20,000. The size of the both lots is 5400 SF. They went to get the property on Thursday. God is moving. This is the location for a baptist church and training center, which is desperately needed to reach the people of Burkina Faso. Not only can people come to worship, but discipleship training can happen here as well. I pray that God continues to move in this area. The ICT of the BCWE is financing the cost of the construction, plus help with the construction of the building when we get there the first week of March.
This is the question I have for you. The cost to construction the building with a concrete roof, restrooms, ceiling fans, pews, pulpit, baptistry and lights will cost $18,000.00. I would like to ask each of you to pray about giving an offering to the cost of the construction. I have had the opportunity to speak at two other churches. One church gave a love offering to the building fund and the youth group at the other church is doing fund
raisers to donate to the construction fund. Pray for this and if any one
has any questions, feel free to email me a call me on cell phone at 404-475-8472.
May God Bless
