Our First Year
Paul is in his fourth semester,
almost a junior. :)
He has assumed the responsibilities with the dormitory
Cecile KONSIMBO – She
is our first female student
Alexandre OUÉDRAOGO – He is a part time student because of his work. He is living in the dorms and has been doing the studies at night
Bénoit KABORÉ – He is also classified as a part time student, but he has been faithful to the morning classes and performs all of the scheduled work, even participating in the
exams with much success.
We hope to have him officially a full time student next semester.
“Mama” my wife, Mary, assists in a variety of capacities, most notably with the music and in counseling the students.
We will be having various other missionary and national
leaders teach specific topics during this coming year.
Our student body (minus three students)
This is Dominike’s fourth year in our Institute. Ghislain attended another Institute for three years and this is his third year at IFBO.
Another student, Noël, who has also attended another Institute, attended IFBO for two years and with a few more assignments, he, Ghislain and Dominike will graduate this year with their four year diplomas.

Administration and Teachers:
Missionary Mike Hillhouse and I have assumed the responsibility of the oversight of IBFO. Mike is in language studies right now and will be teaching full time after his studies. He assists in the Institute in various capacities right now, especially in counseling and encouraging the students.
National Pastor/Missionary Andre BAZIE has been teaching for over two years and has committed to continue in this role this year.
