And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.Matthew 24:14
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
Daniel and Elizabeth Delma
In 1993, years before Athey Creek began, the Lord allowed Pastor Brett to travel to Burkina Faso to teach at a pastors’ conference. In his time there, Brett established several long-lasting friendships, which the Lord has continued to bless. One such friendship is with Pastor Daniel Delma. Through the church, Daniel and his wife minister to the widows in the area by providing the basic needs of these women and their children. Daniel also spends much of his time leading and teaching pastors throughout the country. He is working with another good friend of Athey Creek, Pastor Marcel Yanogo, to instruct pastors throughout Burkina Faso in how to teach through God’s Word verse-by-verse. We are blessed to play a small role in the ministries of Daniel, Marcel, and many other Burkinabe pastors, as we have had the opportunity to send Athey Creekers to Burkina Faso to minister with them in pastors’ conferences, kids camps, and other ministry opportunities.
The Lord continues to bless the people of Burkina as His Spirit moves throughout the country and spreads the Good News of His salvation. Please join us in praying that the Lord would raise up men throughout Burkina Faso to teach His Word. Also, continue praying that the Lord would provide teachers who can assist in training these men as they minister. There is also a constant need for the provision of rain for the crops so that the people have access to food and healthy drinking water. As a result of consistent famine and disease, prayer for the Lord’s healing is always needed. Thank you for your prayers. We are blessed by the Lord’s continued provision and covering and we look forward to ministering with you for many years to come.
