Thanks so much for your donations to Burundi’s Kibimba Willard Ferguson Seminary dorm fire-aid project. Donations came in from all over the country. The project has been fully funded and EFM sent the funds to Burundi this week.
An electrical fire partially destroyed the Kibimba Ferguson Seminary men’s dorm earlier this summer while a Mid-America Friends team was visiting. These funds will enable Friends in Burundi to immediately rebuild the facilities with very few disruptions to the students when they return to classes in September. Remember that while our Friends in Burundi call this a “seminary,” it is a private Friends high school-level Bible school.

p.s. Abby Brown is from Chandler, Oklahoma Friends Church, and she found this page that came out of a Kirundi Bible. It was on the ground outside the dorm the morning after the fire. When Abby showed it to her grandpa, David Kellum, he immediately recognized that Psalm 23 was included on the page.
