An amazing aspect of being part of the body of Christ is that we get to be part of the Church. Not just a church constrained by walls and a roof in one location, but a community of believers that spans the globe. Through our global partnerships here at JFM, we get to participate in kingdom work being done by our brothers and sisters around the world.
Because of our church's partnership with the Free Methodist Church of Burundi, we've been able to see firsthand the impact that the development of the Burenza Health Center has had! As the health center continues to grow in it's capacity to serve the local community, it gives the FMC of Burundi a platform for reaching people with physical as well as spiritual healing.
The health center chaplain shares the word of God and prays with the patients. A recent update shared that because of this, the patients are also able to recover emotionally. Alittle over 2400 people visited the center last month.
Before receiving busoma, the chaplain talks to the mothers who bring their children to the feeding program.
125 children continue to receive life-saving food at the Busoma Feeding Program twice a week. The mothers thank the program because it is helpful to their children for truly sustaining life!
In the most updated reports 122 of the 125 children are making HEALTHY PROGRESS! PRAISE JESUS!
It's the rainy season in Burundi, and that means it's time for farming. Burenza church members planted corn on land around the church.
Praise God for the ways He is working at Burenza!
As the health center expands, our church will have more opportunities to support and encourage this ministry. Also, as the health center expands and operates, upkeep and physical maintenance sometimes will need to be completed.
An immediate need involves the health center's incinerator, which is a vital part of their operations. It needs some updates in order to stay up to government standards.
Helping replace the old incinerator and protective fence is just one small way we can contribute to this ministry as it grows.
Join us as we pray for the plans God has for Burenza moving forward!
