Revival at Dorcas House

Alliance church member Susan Canida, on a short-term missions trip to Burkina Faso, had watched every Monday morning for several weeks as Alliance missionary Lorinda Robinson shared the story of God’s redemption with the 15 young women, ages 15 to 25, living at Dorcas House, a home that offers practical and spiritual mentoring to women who otherwise would be on the streets.

“Carried by the prayers of many, Lorinda’s words fell on ripe ears and ripe hearts—the spiritual veil was removed!” Susan reported. “With tears and joy, seven young women decided to give their lives to Christ for the first time. For many, it was the first time that they had understood the possibility of a personal relationship with Christ.

“Each attendee received her own Bible. Dancing around the room, lifting up their new Bibles, the girls expressed their deep joy in being able to read God’s Word for themselves. One recipient summarized her excitement: ‘I do not need to eat anything today—I have this Bible—it is enough to satisfy me!‘”
