In Burundi, LMI’s Bible Teaching Ministry representative, Aloys Nduwindavyi, and his colleagues from Help Hands Africa enjoyed a very fruitful but heart-wrenching time in the Mutambara zone of Rumonge province last weekend.
This is a continuation of the recent work with individuals and families at the Welcome and Supervision Centre for Vulnerable Persons.
This area has suffered greatly due to poverty, food shortages and political strife.
In the recent past, a significant number of Christians and pastors fled to Tanzania as refugees, with those remaining persevering as best they could.
Thanks to your wonderful support for LMI’s Bible Teaching Ministry and our COVID-19 International Relief Campaign, we enabled Aloys and the team to provide:
🇧🇮 Three days of Bible teaching (Thursday – Saturday), including meals for participants.
🇧🇮 Masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 (which is spreading rapidly in Burundi at present).
🇧🇮 Clothing (dresses) for women who are struggling financially.
🇧🇮 Funding for several micro-businesses with the aim of helping individuals rise out of poverty. Lord willing, these small businesses will include new farms producing and selling tomatoes and beans, and palm oil production.
Aloys and other Christians also took part in door-to-door evangelism and enjoyed some excellent discussions with people they met.
We are truly thankful for the generosity of God’s people that makes endeavours like this possible. Please pray for Aloys and the team, that their labours would be blessed and used of God to further His purposes and bring Him glory. We hope to build on these efforts in the days ahead.
