More information about the music ministry
Another aspect of Rob and Bintou’s involvement in missions is music. With a dad who loves the organ and a mom who is an excellent Balafon dancer, Bintou was “condemned” to love music too. Music in Africa is extremely important. Music is everywhere, in parties, in sports, in rituals, in funerals. Someone said: “Africa is music”.
Bintou and her siblings started a music band as teenagers. In 2005, they held their first art and music camp and finale concert. The enthusiasm in their community was beyond expectation. At least five students gave their lives to Jesus and are still following Him. The Semeurs Juniors ministry, now known as the Balafon Call, was born.
The main core of the ministry is to provide solid Bible teaching for African worship leaders and other Christians called to Worship Ministry in Africa. People need to see their own lives transformed before they can be used to transform other lives. It has now been more than ten years that the BALAFON MUSIC MINISTRY is impacting lives. Rob and Bintou have mentored many young Africans, some of them with rough stories, who are now well-respected citizens in their community and leading worship in churches.
