Youth Camp

" Train up a child the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverb 22:6. 
Burundi Youth for Christ is at work dealing with the Vision of “ Raising up a godly        generation of  leaders to transform the society.” During this Easter Break, Youth for Christ     Burundi organized a Youth camp for teenagers of different schools in Burundi.  The youth camp took place in the compound of Gitega International Academy as students of that school were in their holidays.    

Although there is a crisis in  Burundi, BYFC believe that nothing can prevent someone to 

accomplish the will of God. Different topics were on the agenda: A Transformational Leadership, Self  Esteem, Evangelism/Discipleship, Period of teenage rebellion and Bible study.  These topics were taught by different speakers.
Thus, the main topic which was a Transformational Leadership was taught by Freddy, the National Director.  To continue with the vision of raising up a godly generation of leaders, Freddy challenged the participants by telling them that a human being has great value in the eyes of God. He clarified that when you understand that plan of the Lord, life gets a meaning.
Finally, that young generation came up to understand that when you know why you are  created, life becomes enjoyable. It’s no longer confusing. Burundi Youth for Christ decided to always organize such training for the youth once a year.  Pray with us for this plan to   become a reality.

The livestock farming project is going well. Recently, the cow got a calf, now two goats gave birth to three kids each.We are so grateful to the Lord. Although, the political situation is worse, Burundi Youth for Christ is at work. We keep seeing the hands of God upon us and to continue to enjoy his blessings. May the Lord bless you all who pray for us.

Building Work
Building work has started on the new big multipurpose hall and dormitory for males at Gitega International Academy. When complete, this will allow the small conference room to move across and free up more classroom space for the next intake of new pupils at the end of August.
Building works have also started on the new classrooms for Cibitoke Future Hope School  and a new house at Cibitoke HOH. We are currently operating at maximum capacity and this will allow us to expand the school, the Homes of Hope and take more orphans into a loving home. We have seen God providing miraculously the past years. We are already at work by faith. Would you please join us praying for the needed funding?
