We are Jan and Tonnie Bosman. We were the pastors of Faith, Hope & Love Church (now known as, The Rock Family Worship Center) in Little Falls, Minnesota for 18 years. We are now Mission Pastors. For some time now, the Lord has put the Nations on our hearts, in particular Africa. Our heart is for the bush areas, where the harvest is ripe.
We have ministered in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia, as well as, Cameroon, Africa. But over the past few years, we have seen a real need in Burkina Faso, to bring the Word of God to the people in the bush. We believe the Lord is opening the door wide for this Muslim, and poorest of nations, to come into covenant with Him, and enjoy His favor and blessing, as they enter into the principles of the Kingdom of God, through their faith.
Many have been saved because of the crusades, and the "HOPE" film, (in French "L’Espoir") from Mars Hill. However, without the continued teaching of the Word of God, there is no permanent change or growth for the people. In early 2009, we were blessed to finally get our trailer to Burkina Faso, and also purchased a Toyota, to pull the trailer.
In Burkina, we have been working with a man by the name of Constantin Ouedraogo. He is a wonderful interpreter for us. Who was himself an orphan, he learned very early that without the support, oversight, and involvement of a local church, the children would be neglected. This holistic approach is of great benefit to the children, the churches, and the local communities.
Now that we have the Toyota and trailer in Burkina Faso, Tonnie and I see ourselves living in the bush, for extended periods of time. We plan on teaching and training, for a week at a time, in a particular village, before going onto the next village. We have the Bible in pictures, and the teaching to go along with it. We are able to take the people from Genesis, all the way through the book of Acts. We are currently working on getting it translated into the Moore language, which is the most used and understood of the local languages.
There are still some electrical needs, along with the translation of bible teaching material, and DVD projector.
HARVEST TIME IS HERE!
Please ask the Lord, about partnering with us, with your prayers and support.
