In August of 2010 the Good Shepherd Bible School opened in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The official name of the school, Ecole Biblique Duroowo Lobbo, is a combination of French-Ecole Biblique and Fulfulde-Duroowo Lobbo. Duroowo Lobbo means Good Shepherd in Fulfulde which is the language of the Fulani people for whom the school is being established. The name was chosen to represent the close link between Jesus who is the Good Shepherd of our souls and the Fulani people who are known as the herdsmen of West Africa.
The establishment of this Bible School is a monumental event in the ministry among the Fulani people. The Fulani believers are excited about having this visible testament of their identity as followers of Jesus located in the central part of Burkina Faso. To them, the school is more than a place where church leaders can receive training to strengthen and expand the church among the Fulani of Burkina Faso. It is a public statement of their commitment to know God’s Word, teach the Word, and obey the Word as followers of Jesus who is their Good Shepherd.
