PRAYER FOR BURUNDI AND THE GREAT LAKES REGION OF AFRICA
By Pastor Jared Mlongecha
Recently, there was another political turmoil in the nation of Burundi that has resulted in more than 150,000 Burundians to flee to the neighboring countries of Congo, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
It is estimated that more than 80,000 refugees most of whom women and children have entered Tanzania through a tiny village of Kagunga which lies on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. This fishing village of about 12,000 people is where I was raised.
Based on the report from the local Pastors on the ground, the refugees arrival by day is in thousands and their condition is catastrophic. Some of the local churches have opened their doors to shelter many of these refugees. This is because the UNHCR and other relief organizations have been overwhelmed by the volume of the refugees. And if the political condition continue to worsen in Burundi, the whole region will be affected
Now, I would like to invite you for a morning of Prayer for Burundi and the whole Region of the Great Lakes.I believe, if we the people of God will take matters of the NATIONS in our hands through prayer, God will intervene . 11 Chronicles 7:14 .
This prayer Breakfast meeting is scheduled to take place.
