Church with Alliance Roots Dedicated

Loonyuu CelebrationAlliance missionaries Larry and Nancy Burg recently attended a church dedication in the village of Loonyu, Burkina Faso. “Loonyu holds a special place in our hearts,” say the Burgs, “as it is the home village of many of our friends and pastors around Burkina Faso.”

Claiming a rich Alliance heritage, the Loonyu church began in 1938 with pastor Moise Traore, who suffered greatly for his faith yet persevered through persecution. The Burgs, who attended the event with colleagues L and K, report that today, the village is approximately 95 percent Christian. “The existing building was bursting at the seams,” says Larry, who participated in the expansion project. More than 2,500 people attended the dedication ceremony for the new sanctuary.
