Saturday I will be going out to Broukou where we hope to plant a church. Mark Kennell and Ryan Head have been teaching in this village for several months. Since they are both out of town, I will be using my limited Kabiye abilities to teach a literacy lesson.

 Probably more importantly, I will continue to build relationships in this village about an hour from Kara. After spending some social time in the market, I will travel with Kossi to his house to meet with some of his friends and family. Although Kabiye is spoken throughout our area, most people cannot read it. French is taught in schools here but Kabiye is not.

 The people here place a high priority on relationships, and so our time spent blessing their lives with literacy training is not lost, but builds trust in us and the message we are bringing. Please be in prayer for a fruitful Saturday.
