Sunday Services - August 2005

Voici, our new building (house), which also houses the Fundamental Baptist Institute of Ouagadougou, and new home of the Fundamental Baptist Church of Dassasgo. It is much bigger than our previous home in an office space, and will provide an opportunity for further growth.

Baptism

October 2005

Here is our sign that, unfortunately, stills needs a lot of work. Adama OUÉDRAOGO, along with his brother, Madi, have indicated a strong desire to redo the work of a “professional” that was hired to paint our sign. Hopefully we can get this sign worked on in the very near future.

Because we are now the sole occupants of this house, whereas previously we rented an office space on the second floor of a larger complex, we are responsible for the security of our members and visitors; including their mobylettes and bicycles. Each week one of our men take turns being the “portier and guardian de parking” (the greeter and parking guard).

This week Noël BADO, one of our IBFO students, had  the pleasure of greeting our visitors and guarding the bicycles.

Our parking space, which we will soon turn into the teenage girls’ class taught by our daughters, Hannah and Rebekah.

Our daughter Rachel has been teaching the Junior Church along with one of the men from the Institute to act as a translator into Mooré. She started out with a handful of children when we moved into our new building and has seen it climb to a high of forty-eight children, with an average of thirty-five.

Here are various pictures after the services, taken by our son, Caleb.

Abdoulaye OUÉDRAOGO, who has been very faithful since his salvation July 20, 2005 during our street witnessing. Ghislain NAGALO has started our discipleship program with him. Since Abdoulaye cannot read and write, and his French is limited, it will be a difficult mountain to climb, but one that Abdoulaye is determined to conquer.

 

Timothée KABORÉ, with his son, Noé.

 He has started the Institute while

 working full-time as a nurse.

We love to “talk” after the services.

 It is a fruitful time to find out

 about each other’s spiritual growth.

In the photo to the right is David KORGO (right), who has exhibited faithfulness and a desire to serve the Lord since his profession of faith May 18, 2005, with Christène SINGBEOGO (center), who accepted Christ just before her return to her village, and Étienne BOUGMA (left), who made a profession of faith June 17, 2005. Christène and David, (along with Paul SAYOUGA, Douninoma KORGO, Marguerite SAYOUGA and Dominike SAYOUGA), are from the village of Kougdoughin, which is close to Boulwando.
