I am wanting to find out if our sponsor child and his AG church were impacted by the devastating recent terror attacks in Burkina Faso... Is there a way to find that out?

I'm another sponsor.  The attacks a few days ago were in Silgadji, which is fairly remote in the northern part of the country.  You can look at your child profile to see where they are located.  However, according to this map, it doesn't look like Compassion has any child centers at all near there.

Regardless, pray for Burkina Faso.  These attacks are a relatively new thing there, and they don't have a lot of resources to deal with it.

Thank you for your help, Jennifer. :) Prov 2020, we have not received word that any of our centers in Burkina Faso were affected by these attacks; however, if we do receive news that your child was affected in any way, we will certainly reach out to you.
