The first leadership training through CBSI trainers, Frank and Marian Vroegop will take place in September.  Pastor Benjamin has already put together a Board of Trustees for accountability, begun the process of translating materials into French, Moore and Dioula, and is preparing for the nation-wide distribution of those materials.

Pastor Benjamin writes, “At the end of the day, we believe that as we use CBSI’s material, we will be able to build a strong Church, a Church made of disciples. In this day, before we get our “well done” word from Jesus, we will hear him telling you: well done my beloved; you have allowed the people of Burkina Faso to get what I entrusted you for years. Rest in my love”. Then, we will all rejoice in Him.”

“Now go, I will help you speak and will teach you what to say”

Exodus 4:12
