Dreams Come True

GCF in Action

By

Thanks so much to everyone who gave to the Great Commission Fund (GCF). Your gifts will help some of our ministry dreams in Burkina Faso become a reality.

Because you gave, we will be able to train leaders in evangelism in what we call “missionary zones.” The Kenedougou, Comoé and Lereba are three regions desperately in need of the gospel. God has done great things in these areas, and now, with the funds we received, we anticipate even greater advancements for the Kingdom.

I am also excited about training professional workers (teachers, police, nurses, etc.) in church planting. The goal of the Burkina Alliance is to plant Great Commission churches in each of the country’s 45 provinces. We are currently in 15. This task is impossible if we rely solely on trained pastors because there aren’t nearly enough. However, we noted that many Alliance professionals have been placed by the government all over the country. In fact, last year we discovered that we had Alliance members working in at least 15 provinces where there is no Alliance church. We want to hold a church-planting conference with these “professional workers” next summer, and the funds we received couldn’t have been more timely.

We believe strongly that God has called us to be disciplemakers, not just soul winners. The money received will be used to train pastors in our two Bible schools here in Burkina. It will also be used to train and facilitate discipleship in some of our newest regions of church planting. I look forward to organizing seminars, classes and seeing discipleship groups begin throughout Burkina Faso.

We have some great resources for teaching evangelism, discipleship and church planting. These funds will help us translate resources into Jula (the language most used in southern Burkina Faso). Four pastors are training laymen for village church planting. The reports of their work are great. The two in our region are each training nearly 15 men this year. If each trained layman plants a church next year, we can only imagine the results.

We praise God for His provision and for those who gave to the GCF, making these ministry dreams become a reality!
