Christian and Missionary Alliance
A world wide fellowship of missionary churches, the C&MA was founded in 1887 and today has a constituency of over 2.5 million in the US, Canada and 56 other countries and territories. The work of the Alliance remains one of proclamation and anticipation — the proclamation of the Gospel and the anticipation of the Lord's return to the earth. 

Ministry Overview 

Mike and Renee will be working to share the gospel with the Deaf community in Burkina Faso. Mike will be working closely with the local Deaf School, proving chapel services once a week, evening Bible studies for the students, and weekend activities for the students who live in the dorms on campus. Renee will be working with the mothers of the Deaf children, and helping the school’s preschool program to get up and running. They both will be overseeing sign language classes for the community, taught by native Deaf Burkinabé. They are also hoping to partner with a local church to provide signed services for the Deaf community. 

Prayer Requests 

  •      Pray for their transition from the states to Burkina Faso.
  •      Pray for quick and easy acquisition of the French, Djula, and Burkina sign languages.
  •      Pray for their boys’ adjustment to the culture and language. 
  •      Pray for wisdom in their decision-making and in raising their boys.
  •      Pray for health and safety for the family.
