Tim is currently in west Africa visiting the countries of Burkina Faso and Togo. His main objective in Burkina Faso is to examine a huge printing press there which they have never used because they have not been able to get it operational. He is bringing some of the parts from the press back to the U.S. for repairs. The parts will then be returned to Burkina Faso at a later date.
This is his first trip back to Africa since our assignment to Africa’s Hope as team leader for Africa Library Services. It is also his first trip to the west African country of Burkina Faso. The people he has met there have been very hospitable to him and the General Superintendent arranged for him to visit two Bible Schools near by while he is there. He was shown the libraries and viewed many of the books and materials that have been sent there by Africa’s Hope thanks to donations from various churches. Without the help of our ministry partners these libraries would not exist and they would not have the necessary books and training materials they need to train pastors and leaders.
Tim was proudly shown their Discovery Series Bible School Curriculum printed in French that they use to teach their Bible School students. The Discovery Series material is printed on the printing equipment at Africa Library services in several languages and sent to our Bible Schools all over Africa. Again, this ministry is made possible through our generous ministry partners across the U.S.
