Dear Prayer Partner,

Please receive our warm greetings from Bujumbura Burundi in Jesus Name!

I am pleased to send you this note to thank you for your wonderful support of prayer and help during the year 2003, because you helped us we were able to brings Good News to children at refugee camp here in Bujumbura and many children received Jesus Christ as their personal savior.

The year 2003 was a year that we saw God doing miracles to us here at CCD Burundi, we thank God for the house/office that we have now, I remember I wrote you about the need of house in which we could have an office and you prayed for us then miraculously God provided funds to pay for the rent of that house. It is amazing to see how God does miracles to his children. We prayed for the house for more than 4 years and half and at God’s time He answered. Praise the Lord for that.

We continue to experience the miracles of God on how He provides the funds to pay for the office of CCD Burundi, for activities, to meet our living expenses, transportation and communication and so on.

Praise the LORD for my trip to Kigoma where I went to see refugees from Burundi who are there since 1993 due to war that erupted at time. I was able to meet Rev. Obadiah and his family who are in great need of help, please pray for them. There are many children there who need to be helped spiritually and physically, God willing we will need to bring some help to these children who are suffering in the refugee camps in Tanzania.

It was a miracle for us to receive our first visitors from Germany, Mr. Benjamin and Katrin left Germany on Dec 6, 03 and arrived in Bujumbura on Dec 7, 03, from that day until today they go to evangelize Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ to different churches based in Bujumbura Burundi. I translate for them from English into Kirundi our mother tongue to help Burundian to understand the message. Wherever we go people receive them warmly and are encouraged and blessed by the message that they bring to them. We would like to run seminars but we don’t have funds for these seminars.

We thank God for what He enabled to do during the last year and God willing, this year 2004 we will continue with children evangelism at refugee camp and start some community development projects to help poor people to overcome poverty and do other activities. Please pray for us and support us as the Lord leads you. The following are the urgent prayer requests that I would like to share with you:

Pray for the money that is needed to pay for the office, we still need $ 300 USD to pay for the last month of Dec, 2003. Please pray that God may help us to meet this need now.
Play that God may meet our living expenses for this month of January 2004.
Pray that God may open a door for us to get funds needed to ship our 2 donated vehicles from Japan to Burundi.
Pray that God may help us to get food, clothing, medicines, and school fees for children at refugee camp.
Pray for church workers that we plan to train in this year 2004.
Thanks a lot for praying for us. May the Lord bless you.

Yours in Christ,
