Rebecca is a living repertoire of Dagara Christian music. When our church-planting partners began ministering in Burkina Faso in 2002, there were no Christian songs in the Dagara language.

All the Dagara people we met agreed that witchdoctors had the power to heal, curse, or even kill. We’d seen the scars they left on children’s bellies they’d cut to treat stomach illness caused by water, and we went into Bapuloyaw's “spirit house” to learn more.
Here's how an unreached people group in Africa goes from 0 to 80 churches! Follow this timeline featuring the work of our ministry partners in Burkina Faso and see how clean water plays an integral role.
One minute, Cory Scheer was pedaling through the last mile of the day's triathlon training. The next, he was being loaded into an ambulance with a concussion, hairline fractures to his spine and 300 stitches worth of lacerations. Here's how he turned his injury into a challenge to meet others' basic needs.
This summer, newlyweds Jesse and Leigha Lambert traded four wheels for two. They sold their car and instead rode bikes to get around their New Jersey town. Those several months of cycling were all preparation for a 4,000-mile cross-country excursion to raise money for clean water. Now with a week and 200 miles behind them, they've already raised more than $800.
