We are moving forward to help the people of Burkina Faso by requesting a $12.00 per month Donation…

February 21, 2012

We hope that you and your family are under God’s grace…

This last November, a group from Grace Chapel visited and assisted in finishing an all purpose room at The Ephphatha School for the deaf in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. The room was a vision of Pastor Michel’s over 5 years ago and finally is in the last stage of completion after construction started over three years ago.

We are writing you today to start on the next part of the journey by raising monthly funds to sustain these schools. We spoke about how we can help Pastor Michel and Lydia work through the constant stress of providing for 180 students at the deaf school and 480 students at the Village of Hope.

The cause is so important, to help create a community of leaders in West Africa. We have tried other methods to partner with other ministries but this part has not come together. It is time for us to reach out to lift this burden from Pastor Michel and Lydia. We are asking you to sign up and give $12.00 per month to help feed the children and pay the teachers salaries.

We have an AHI advocate on the ground in Ouagadougou, Linda Ellis. Linda is going to interview each student, take a picture and send an outline about the student to each person who donates.

Please consider today sponsoring one or two students on an annual basis. Please go to http://africanhopeinitiative.org and click on make a contribution, and then use the drag on menu to reach Ephphatha School for the Deaf .Giving on-line is the most cost effective way to get the most money to these children.

Please reach out to anyone you think would be interested in helping. We would be very interested if you would join us as advocates to help make this a success. Please let us know.

We are grateful for all you do in God’s name and for the benefit of the less fortunate.

In His Name and for his glory,

Dave Bidwell and Bill Walsh
