Several months ago we faced an impasse at the local prison in Burkina Faso where we serve by teaching a women's Bible study and by providing food, medicine, and other helps to the over 700 prisoners housed in this facility. The problem was not ours but it treated to shut down our work. For more than a month we were unable to continue. But we did not give up praying. Many on our team were fasting on our normal ministry day. God began to work and suddenly we found ourselves back at the prison with new doors open to us and two new members to join our team. We prayed that our ministry could continue, but our Lord Jesus went above and beyond as He answered our prayer.Attached File  IMG_3776.jpg   79.97KB   0 downloads
