God Builds Hopeful Futures in Burundi
BY JESSE & JOY JOHNSON
In 2006, when we moved to Burundi, the civil war that ravaged Burundi for more than 10 years was winding down. Our local elders were eager to see the country’s education system restored as soon as possible with the Lord’s people leading the way. When the elders learned that Joy was a teacher, they approached us with the idea of reopening the Christian school that had operated on the Emmanuel Church property from 1985 to 1994, when the fighting grew so close it could not stay open. The local elders reasoned that reopening the school, this time as a secondary school, would be a sign of hope.
