It is one of the great challenges for our pastors and their families. How to pastor a church in poor areas of Burkina Faso and still have enough money to feed, cloth, and school a family. We serve as Bible teachers, training pastors and their wives to serve the church, but we also want to equip them in practical ways. Your giving to the Great Commission Fund allows us to teach practical skills to our pastors and wives. This includes farming techniques, health classes, soap making, sewing, crocheting, and most recently our women began a class on broom making. Most of the pastors that we teach will need to find ways to supplement their income. By providing practical skill training, it will ease some of the financial pressure and the problems that come into a family because of the lack of money.
