Helping Refugees in Burkina Faso  October 2019
Dear Friends,

We are fortunate to be able to worship the Lord without serious persecution here in the United States. It is not this way in many parts of the world, including parts of West and Central Africa (WACA). In recent news you may have heard about
extremist muslims killing pastors and other believers in Dori, Burkina Faso. After that tragic event, the killings unfortunately have not stopped. In several places across Burkina Faso, Christians continue to be murdered. Some are shot, while others are beheaded. We tend to block such things out of our minds in an “out-of-sight, out-of-mind” sort of way. But we are not in a position to do that. We are called for such a time as this.  We have more than 80 Live Schools training indigenous missionaries in Burkina Faso. Some are in this northern area that have been experiencing intense persecution. In fact, in Dori and two other villages in the north we have had to stop schools due to the persecution. Multiple thousands of people have fled to towns and villages that are southward to get out of the onslaught, the “hot zone” in the extreme north of the country.
What an opportunity we have to bring the healing Balm of Gilead to their hearts! Our coordinator says that with the French Live School, they easily will fill one classroom with 60-80 people and the other with 50-70 French speakers, but if they translate the school into Mòoré in another room, there will be many more men, women and youth. As these refugees go through Live School, not only will the Holy Spirit heal their hearts, but they will be trained in courses like “You Can Start a Business” and “Farming God’s Way,” which will break the cycle of poverty when put into practice. Burkina Faso is the seventeenth poorest nation in the world. But the real impact will come in their lives as the Holy Spirit empowers them to move from being victims to victors in Christ.  This will become apparent when they finally return home and possess their land in Him!
