Raising Harvest Force for the Least reached

CMF entered the Land with the vision to raise indigenous disciples who shall become missionaries to reach the remaining unreached people groups in Burkina Faso and other Francophone countries. By evangelizing, discipling, mobilizing and envisioning the young Burkinabe we shall together reach the unreached in Burkina Faso and beyond.

It all started in 2009 when one of us responded to a Macedonian call of a Burkinabe Pastor to come to Burkina. A training need was seen in the land which was keyed into. Since then we began to pursue a CMF Burkina vision, using training as tool.

Dozens of candidates have since gone through short term mission training and a team of labourer has been raised. Doors of churches are open to us for training to enlighten them on missions as well as recruiting labourers who will reach the unreached people in the land.

Missions Training is still a big need in the entire country. Testimonies abound on how the Short Term Missions School held since 2011 has been helpful. At present, our ministry activities cover Ouagadougou and Sapouy. We train, mobilize, engage in field work and partner with other ministries. We work among the Peulh (Fulani) and Gurunsis. Our work among the Peulh (Fulani) is progressing slowly. Jesus film outreaches held at Sapouy and 17 other villages have produced about 62 souls to Christ and follow up and discipleship activities are ongoing. Testimonies abound in the lives of our converts and disciples as we continue to preach and teach them the Word of God. They are making progress in their walk with the Lord, Mariam was healed by the Lord of a long time pain in the legs and her marriage that was at the verge of breaking was restored. Sabine was brought to our fellowship center for deliverance. She got converted and totally delivered, Prosper; one of our converts but under serious manipulation from a marabou (herbalist) was at the verge of turning away from the Lord when the Lord showed him mercy, he was delivered and baptized in the Holy Spirit likewise Vivian.

CMF work started in Gambia several years ago with the vision of raising indigenous Disciples who will saturate the nations with God’s word and kingdom values. Our strategies / Activities include: Church planting, Youth Empowerment Summit, Prayer, Discipleship and Mission conferences, Education Ministry, Children Welfare and Mission/Leadership Training. We reach out to the following people groups -Manjago, Jola, Karon (karoninca), Fula, Wolof, Serahaule and Mandinka as well as Aku.

Our labour in the land has resulted into planting of indigenous Churches in many communities and among many unreached people groups and we see a growth in discipleship both for individuals and families. Many indigenous missionaries have been raised as well and are actively involved in laboring among their people. One of the missionaries a Manjaku by tribe is also well involved in outreach efforts to his tribe. He is facilitating literacy in the language and has hosted the Manjaku Conference which is a meeting of Manjaku Ministers, missionaries and some members of the tribe from Guinea Bissau, Senegal and Gambia. He has been having Bible teachings in Manjago on radio for several years now and many Manjagos listen to this program as a primary discipleship tool in their local language.
