One of the special things about being a part of this ministry is to sometimes share life with these leaders where they serve and here in the States. It was our privilege to host Alassane in our home for the last three weeks. It gave us time to love on him and give him a much-needed time of rest. We also had the opportunity to schedule times for him to share with individuals, small groups, schools and churches about the persecution that is going on in Burkina and how they are ministering there.
God greatly used this time giving the opportunity for Alassane and us to meet with previous team members who have served with the ministry in Burkina. We were able to give an update on the ministry and on the lives of people they met while there. It was also a great opportunity for those new to the CWO ministries to meet someone face to face who is serving in ministry. We hope that all of these meetings were encouraging to those who hear about what God is doing in Burkina through the ministries there.
