The Timothy Initiative (TTI) Breaking New Ground in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso persecution ranking: 32


Do you ever wonder if you are making a difference in God’s Kingdom? Kojo, a church planting trainer from West Africa, does not have to wonder. This past spring, Kojo and others provided church planting training for 25 people who want to see God’s Kingdom extended and people blessed. They work with The Timothy Initiative (TTI), which offers a three-step, two-year process.

Step one is to lead a group of disciple-makers through TTI’s introductory materials called “Disciples Making Disciples.” That takes four months, and they learn how to evangelize, make disciples, and plant churches. For the next 12-15 months they share their faith, raise up more believers and begin the process of planting churches. From there, church planting trainers mentor them in leadership, and how to make sure the church is sustainable. A sustainable church will plant more churches. The congregation should financially support leadership rather than depending on outsiders. The church planting trainer is always on the lookout for others who can train others to literally multiply their work.

This past spring, Kojo joyfully announced that out of 25 who received this training, 15 will graduate next month, August. They are ready to extend the Kingdom to new places in Burkina Faso!

Let us pray fervently for:

  • Pray for these 15 to have the dedication of Titus to disciple others and extend God’s Kingdom (The Bible, 2 Corinthians 8:16).
  • Pray for the Lord to raise up persons of peace who will welcome those who bring good tidings of God’s love to their villages (The Bible, Luke 10:6).
  • Pray for the Lord to guard and protect all those involved with TTI and their families as they continue the Lord’s work this year (The Bible, Psalm 91:9-10).
