East Africa Region Competency Development Conference
We are excited to share with you that together with Youth for Christ International/Africa Leadership Team, we organized an East Africa Region Competency Development Conference which took place in Burundi from October 25th - 31st, 2018. A team of thirty representatives from the head office and different projects of Youth for Christ Burundi attended that conference. We had an amazing time. The conference was honoured by different leaders from Burundi. The Youth for Christ Africa Leader who normally focussed on Family Matters, encouraged participants by sharing his passion to mobilise participants to mobilise Indigenous leaders, particularly young people by engaging, empowering and equipping them to bring hope to this generation. The message was shared with YFC staff delegates from Youth for Christ Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Congo, Rwanda and Burundi who attended the conference. Different topics were on the agenda: - Family Values, Stewardship, Evangelism, Spiritual formation and Discipleship. We are grateful to the Lord as the speakers and facilitators happen to meet the expectations of the Participants.
Homes of Hope ( orphanages) Updates
Kids in all the Homes of Hope are doing well. Some of them have been suffering from illness these last weeks, but we are thankful that they are recovering now. The children no longer feel orphans. They are growing well and are rejoiced to have sponsors. Their life has been dramatically changed since their arrival in Homes of Hope. They have mums to give them food, wash their clothes and take care of them. The eyes of YFC Burundi leaders are opened wider to dreams that only God can make this possible, along with practical tips towards the goal of sustainability in the YFCB projects for a best future of these children. The Homes of Hope (Orphanage) is trying to run multiple projects to sustain themselves and help different groups of people in the community. We are grateful to you all who are sponsoring these kids. Please continue to pray with us for the health and wellness of our kids, organizations and nations.
Future Hope School students are already in their period of exams for their first term during this 2018 and 2019 school year. We attach great importance to preparation of students for success. The results of this is observable as our schools are ranked among the best schools in Burundi. We give glory to the Lord! We are also grateful to the Lord for the good health of both Future Hope School and Gitega International Academy students. Please continue praying with us for the students to keep moving forward in excellence.
