Janet and I arrived in Burkina Faso in 2013 on a mission to support Bible translation. We found our home in a very poor section of a large city. Working on translations in the midst of poverty, it did not take long for us to encounter the overwhelming needs of the people with whom we had come to live among. After finding a neighbor with a gravely underfed baby boy we soon found ourselves managing an infant nutrition program for children near and, in a very short time thereafter, far from our new home. Confronted, at first with children and then adults, with little or no reserves during extended cuts in water service, we began distributing packaged water and ice to those thirsting through long days of 100+ degree temperatures.
Happening upon gaunt women with tiny babies, we began distributing small packages of rice and beans to supplement meager meals. We continue to work to share the love of Jesus with those who need Bibles, host Sunday school for neighborhood children, many of whom are Muslim, and bring joy to children by providing soccer balls, kites, and opportunities to laugh.
After meeting a few Sheltering Wings missionaries, we soon heard the Lord's call to leave our administrative positions and work full-time sharing the love of Christ and His Good News with the "least of these". Visit our blog spot - click here
