Soccer Tourney - May 01, 2007
With May 01, 2007 being a federal holiday here in Burkina the Fundamental Baptist Church of Dassasgo decided to use this holiday to host the first of many soccer tournaments between sister churches here in Ouagadougou. The International School of Ouagadougou graciously
allowed us the use of their soccer fields for the day.
Four area churches and I.B.F.O. participated. The Fundamental Baptist Church of Ouidi prevailed winning in the championship game 2 to 1 over New Life Baptist Church of Tensouka. Winning 7 to 1 over I.B.F.O., the Fundamental Baptist Church of Tengandogo easily took third place. Unfortunately, the host church, the Fundamental Baptist Church of Dassasgo finished a distant fifth.
Here are a few pictures of the teams and games.

Mary watching over the day's activities as she meticulously planned, organized and executed a well prepared tourney.
After the soccer matches we moved over to the church in Dassasgo for a time of food and fellowship. Our ladies spent most of the morning preparing the meals,
while everyone else was participating in the games.
Kadi took the charge of organizing and preparing the meal with the help of the ladies of the church.
Germane and Noëlie
Adjaratou and Adama
Even though several of our ladies have babies to take care of, they still participated in preparing the meal by innovative methods of entertainment for their children; as Adjaratou allowed her son, David, to play in a bucket.
