The Bishop of Durham’s, Rt Rev Paul Butler, recent visit to Burundi provides an accurate insight into the current situation within the country.

Bishop Butler’s visit provided him with both challenge and encouragment:

“On one level it is hard to be anything other than pessimistic for the next months, whatever political settlement might be reached. So much damage has already been done. Yet I had one of the most stimulating discussions with a group of young men…young Christian business entrepreneurs, young leaders of Christian organisations…all passionate about wanting to serve Christ fully. Staying put because they love their nation and believe it can have a hopeful future.”

“For me the challenge is to stand with my sisters and brothers in prayer and to encourage many others to do so. Burundi is one of the very poorest, least significant nations on earth. This is exactly why in God’s economy it really matters.”
