An Expanding Ministry?

DAK Ministry Update, May 9, 2017

Dear Friends,

Wow! A whole year has passed without sending you news! Those of you who read my WordShare Prayer Page on Facebook, are regularly updated, but that does not excuse me from communicating with my non Facebook friends! Yes, I have been very busy, some may say too much, my brain seems quite stretched at times — teaching a variety of courses in Bible schools, checking a variety of translated books, occasionally working on developing resources, and getting involved in the new ministry of consultant training and mentoring.

The geography of my ministry is in the process of being redefined — uncertain future for working with the Ngas in Nigeria, but new possible opportunities for both Congo's (Kinshasa and Brazzaville), more work right here at home in Burkina, and solicitation from as far away as the Asian continent! The biggest surprise was receiving an invitation to teach Biblical geography at a youth camp in a village north of Ouagadougou! But solicitations for my resources continue to come from anywhere, most lately from various parts of Africa. We are thankful for the opportunities to serve.

Below you will see a summary of what I and Daniel have been up to in the past year (the details are on WordShare Prayer Page), as well as our financial needs, and prayer concerns.

Continue to pray for us and for Burkina Faso. The government has been working at preventing more terrorist attacks and threats on schools in the northern part of the country. There is enforced security everywhere, police checks on road trips, armed forces on the streets, airport type security when entering large churches, businesses, restaurants and hotels. But life goes on. We are thankful to continue our ministry here.

We thank you all for your prayer and financial support this past year. We would appreciate your continuation of support, and also new supporters. In addition to helping us out, we provide for education funds for pastoral students and for ANTBA translators, as our funds allow. This includes subsidizing training in workshops and Bible schools, and studies at university level. If you would like to help out, please contact us for more information.

A note for American Mennonite donors: Mennonite Mission Network will now receive donations on our behalf and forward them to us. You can find our names on their website, and give either by mail or on-line. They offer 5% or less administrative fee for this service. Write me for more information.

Thank you for your prayers and we pray for you also as you meet challenges where you are.

Anne and Daniel Kompaoré
