Our partner in Burkina Faso is called JamTan Ministries. We have been working with them for 7 years. We began with a large water system as without water you can't do much else. With a very successful well and tank system we proceeded to build dorm rooms, classrooms, a restaurant, 7 shops, and a large meeting hall. This ministry is adding great value to the community in many ways. Several times a year we sponsor Medical Days where people can come and be seen by doctors and receive medicines and therapy. The core of the ministry is training Africans from the surrounding 6 nations in making disciples that make disciples. (This is called DMM...Disciple Making Ministry). Training lasts at least 6 months and during that time everyone is trained in a job skill so they can support themselves wherever they go. The facility also hosts many large gatherings for the Christian community of BF.
We have been asked to build classrooms for expanding the school at JamTan.
