As news reaches us urther unrest in Burundi, we ask for your continued prayers for the country, for our partners and friends there and for our partners in neighbouring countries.

In light of ongoing anti-government protests and violence in recent weeks and with the exodus of over 50,000 people from the country, an emergency meeting is being held today in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) of the leaders of the East African Community – Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.

With rumours of an attempted military coup today being denied by President Nkurunziza, the situation is uncertain and extremely volatile.

We ask you to pray for God’s peace to prevail and to bless our partners in Burundi and also those in Rwanda and DR Congo as they respond to the influx of refugees from Burundi.

Our Global Partners in Burundi have written to say:

thank you very much for your encouraging words and prayers. We believe the Lord is with us and loves us and Burundi. With your prayers and ours, God will sustain us and bless us and our country.

Please keep praying:
+ For peace in Burundi as tensions continue to rise, particularly in light of the news today.
+ For regional leaders in discussion to seek a peaceful way forward.
+ For the Church to stand as a symbol of peace and reconciliation.
+ For our Global Partners and their families, friends & colleagues, for safety and wisdom.
+ For those who have left Burundi, seeking refuge in Rwanda, DR Congo & Tanzania.
+ For the response of the Church in these neighbouring countries – particularly CMSI’s Global Partners.
