Burundi Bible Project…every $5 helps put a Bible in the hands of a Burundian youth!
We have been presented with a special opportunity to partner with the two Yearly Meetings of Evangelical Friends Church Burundi to distribute Bibles at a partial cost. The Burundi church wants to be able to distribute Bibles especially to the youth of Burundi who don’t currently have their own.
We have the privilege to help offset costs for as many as 3,000 Bibles in the Kirundi language. Burundi youth will pay $2 and we will match with $5. At $5 each, this would be as much as $15,000 to raise in order to get these Bibles into the hands of Burundi youth! On June 1, we will let Burundi leaders know how much our gift will be and they will purchase Bibles accordingly.
The deadline to receive funds to our office is June 30th.
EFC-MAYM is a sister church to the Friends Church in Burundi and this is a great chance to come alongside their ministry to support what God is doing through the largest Evangelical Friends Church in the world which is Burundi!
We are excited about sending two teams to the mission field this summer on behalf of EFC-MAYM. We have a team of 8 planning to serve on our EFM field in Nepal and a team of 21 headed to serve in Burundi. Updates and reports from both of these trips will be shared with you from the field later this summer. Both teams leave Wichita on June 22nd.
Thanks for your timely consideration!
