Dear Praying Friend,

Greetings in Jesus Name!

What a blessing to have a miracle from God. I am pleased to take this time to share with you how God answered prayers of the children that I teach God’s word at refugee Camp. From last year I have been telling you about the needs of children and you have been praying for the clothing, food, educational materials, school fees, medicines and so on.

Every Saturday when we meet with Children at refugee camp inour Good News Club, children pray for different need that they have include what I have mentione above. We thank God for the way you have been praying for the needs of these children.

It is amazing to see how God answers prayers, last Saturday God used SHEMEZA MUSIC to come to refugee camp to see the children and their parents. SHEMEZA MUSIC is a group of Christian Youth who sing for the Lord here in Burundi. SHEMEZA is a Kirundi word which means PRAISE, “they praise God” because they are Christians and they sing Christian Songs to proclaim Jesus Christ to others. On Christmas Day, the had a Concert and they collected some money which they used to buy food, soap, plastic cups, clothing for children and their parents, all things took more that $ 800 USD.

When children saw these gifts, together with us and their parents, we thanked God for that miracles. We didn’t know if God led this group of Christian Singers to bring gifts to children, it was really a miracle for me and for my children. I gave a testimony of it. Praise the Lord, children because they were able to have some food, clothing, soaps for this time; yes things were not enough for the people who are in the camp but we thank God for these things because it was provision from God and a blessed one. Thanks a for holding these children in your prayers.

Miracles still continue to happen to children, just on Monday I had a dream at night that there is a box came from outsite of Burundi and I went to the post office to receive it, in the morning I went to check it at the post and the lady who works at the post office when she saw me she said we have some thing for you, then I said let me see, other worker lifted the box and I knew that it was the box I saw at night. So this week a box full of clothing from the USA has already arrived in Bujumbura, I am going to give to the children at regufee camp on this Saturday. May God bless brothers and sisters in the USA who sent this box. Please pray for other 3 more boxes that are still in the USA to be sent ‘Patricia informed me’. So they still need money to post them and to ensure them and to pay taxes when those boxes will arrive to Burundi.

This is result of your prayers to the needs of our children here in Burundi especially those kids who are at refugee camp. Please continue to pray for them.

Just to remind you that we still need your prayer in the area of financial suport for the adminstration expenses; please pray that God may provide money to pay for the internet, telephone, transporation, the office rent for this month, for the educational of my son Elijah, living expenses and so on.

Please pray for our Good New Club that I will have with Children at refugee camp. Pray for protection and mercy journey. Thank you very much for standing with us in prayers at this time of great need of help. Please take time to forward this message to your friends. May the Lord bless you.

Yours in Christ,
