No current Talk conversations about this book.
Follows Simon's first decade in Burundi through prayer letters, diary entries and reflections. Spiritual warfare to the fore. ( )
In 1999 Simon Guillebaud arrived in the war torn country of Burundi, Africa to work with Scripture Union. The prayer that had taken him there was straight from his heart - "God, I'll do anything, I'll go anywhere. Just make it clear". God did make it clear and this book covers the next ten years of Simon's journey and how through him and his colleagues God brought hope and healing to the people of Burundi. This is not just Simon's story though but speaks to us as we live here in Aberdeen that if we are willing to take God at His word what amazing things can be accomplished. An inspiring read that asks us to think "If God is worth anything, then He is worth everything", read it and see if you agree.
In 1999 Simon Guillebaud went to Burundi, probably the most dangerous country on earth, where he pulled an evangelistic team together to reach the youths of the streets. Several colleagues died. God honoured their efforts. Hundreds found faith. Miracles became almost a daily occurrence. Although Simon had not expected to survive, God had other plans. A lady called Lizzie was willing to share his tough life: they now have three children. To empower local people, Simon determined to construct the best conference centre in Burundi. The centre was built without incurring debts or paying bribes. It is now open and already profitable. Simon comments: 'The book combines prayer letters, diary entries and reflections from ten years in a war zone. It covers witchcraft, miracles, evangelism, Islam, orphans, street kids, aids, business for mission, and stories of triumphant faith in the midst of hideous suffering.'
