Wells for Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso villageBurkina Faso, Ouagadougou, Dédouton; exotic places with exotic names that are ravaged by heat and lack of rain most of the year. In the West African country of Burkina Faso the people scratch out an existence by subsistence farming.  Donkeys are used to pull a single blade Plowing in Burkina Fasoplow and the rest is done by back breaking work. Burkina Faso is a land in desperate need of clean, plentiful water. Pastor Michel OUEDRAOGO, the President of the Assemblies of God church in Burkina Faso, indicated that the people and the land are thirsty for the water that will give physical life and they are BF boy who needs waterthirsty for the Living Water that will give eternal life. Small children carry containers of water on their heads and walk great distances. It is our desire to put fresh water wells in as many villages in Burkina Faso as possible. Recently the national Assemblies of God leadership of Burkina Faso gave us the names of nine priority villages that are in desperate need of clean water.

You can make a real difference in the lives of real people who  Mark with BF childrenhave real needs for the basic necessity of clean water. The average well in this remote and very special country will cost approximately $11,200. Though the cost is great, the desperate need for clean water is greater. May we give more than a cup of water in the name of Jesus.
