What’s Happenin? #1

Written by Joel Hayslip. Posted in Evangelism Teams

OutreachNow that we have some peace now here in the country, things are getting back to normal-ish.

#1 – Outreaches!

The 5 outreach teams have started organizing evangelistic outreaches for kids all over Burkina Faso.

  1. Today a team left for Tebele, a village in the south that has a new church amongst an animist people called the Kasena.  (2 days)
  2. Next week we have a VBS with the flood victims (from 2 years ago) along with a medical clinic and a big concert. (5 days)
  3. Also next week:  a group is going to Manga, again in the south.  This will be with the Mossi – the largest people group here in Burkina. (3 days)
  4. Of course at the end of the month we are going to the Turka, but we will have a bunch of information on this outreach. (8 days)

What I LOVE about these outreaches is that they are all self-funded.  Meaning that the evangelism teams and the receiving pastors work together to provide the gas, the food, the water, etc..   We simply provide the van and the evangelism tools (speakers, projector, puppets, etc).

LOVE IT!

    Joel, what teams are these? Are these some of the same teams you formed for Operation Christmas Child?

    Dear Joel an Heidi,
    Enjoyed the video and seeing the work that you are doing there in Burkino Faso. The children are so wonderful to see in their everyday life. Their smiles are infectious. Andrea is preparing to come and excited about the trip and the team from Newspring that she will be working with. Bless you both and your boys for being there and sharing the Love of God! We love you! Veda and the whole Byers Family :)

    Was praying for your family and ministry this morning. Was moved by the video ..the responce of the children to the gifts and the love you are showing them. Your good looking boys have grown so much since I saw them last at Bethel San Jose. God continue to bless and use you.

    Reading about your work is very exciting, I thank God we can be a small part. May the God we serve do”exceedingly abuntantly” more than we ask or imagine according to His great power that works in us!!

    I “amen” what Tammy shared! When you chart it out you can see the way that the Lord took a small seed and caused it to grow. Only the Father knows what is in store as you keep sowing faithfully. That 1,000,000 child mark by 2020 may have been a little pessimistic! We’ll keep praying for you guys and for full-blown revival in Burkina. – Dad

    This is so exciting to see your faithfulness year after year to reach out in the name of Jesus to the children in Burkina Faso!

    It is truly the LORD at work to keep growing the seed planting opportunities and to partner up with OCC – this Saturday (Sept. 15th) in St. Joseph, MO there will be a local “Count Down Event” to share with area churches and groups with sharing this type of testimony – which will really encourage them to pack more shoeboxes – to touch more children to hear the gospel! please join me to pray for this special event!
    keep on blessing those around you – a little bit of love goes a long long way =D
