I apologize I did not get this post up sooner. But, as many of you know, I was in bed for a week with what I am calling the “African Revenge”. I am now moving forward so I thought I would give you some pictures from Burkina Faso, Africa. There will be more to come- but lets start with these…
The Children were awesome. I loved playing with them.
I was holding this little girl while we listen to her Mom tell the story of her husband dying, having her home burned down because she would not marry her Muslim brother in law and the church stepping up to build her a new one in their village!
This lady came to draw water (from the type of well we will dig). They said I couldn’t help her- it was wrong. She gets the job done and loads it on her head.
So… I did what I do at the house when Sandy says I can’t help… I lead the applause.. Look at those back muscles! That is a 5 gallon pot- I think. I may be able to find video- it was impressive.
Thank you for praying for me while I was gone and for my health once I got back. Remember- our year end “Love Your Neighbor Offering” will focus on 3 areas we want to impact for the Gospel:
ENGAGE BURKINA FASO
- We want to drill a well and start a church.
EQUIP HAITI ORPHANAGE
- Special needs that our Orphanage may have during the year
IMPACT BRADENTON, FL
- Partner in staring- Good Life Church- Pastor, Jason Smith
OUR GOAL: $18,000
