La Bonne Nouvelle

“For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...” Matthew 25:35

Late last year INNZ put out a plea to help children in Burkina Faso who had been displaced after their school was targeted by extreme terrorists. Sadly, Christians are being targeted by extremists supported by Al Qaeda cells operating in Mali and the North of the country.
Christ’s Light was spread and will continue to permeate Burkina Faso, especially through our International Needs Christian School: La Bonne Nouvelle.
International Needs Burkina Faso (INBF) is our partner in Bobo Dioulasso; they have been implementing development programs in the Colma district of Bobo for over 20 years, ranging from basic healthcare programs, maternity support, and fighting malaria to providing between 600 - 700 pupils each year with education at La Bonne Nouvelle primary and secondary school. INBF also run evangelistic outreach programs amongst the country’s unreached people groups and are currently church planting. INBF are well placed and experienced to implement sustainable change in their community.

Here is a story from a student whose life has been changed through the “Light”:

"My name is Ouedraogo. Before telling you my story I would like to say thank you for your support. I am now able to continue my studies.
Our village, which is 100 km from Bobo, was attacked by armed groups. My parents were able to flee with me and we found refuge in Bobo-Dioulasso. My parents lost everything we had including a field we cultivated to feed us. Without your help I would be a street child having to beg with my mother. Today you have given me the opportunity to continue my studies and to have a good future.

May God bless you."
