African Adventures of Faith under Fire,

Speaker: Simon Guillebaud, founder and International Director of Great Lakes Outreach 

Burundi is a small densely populated country in central Africa. It has suffered from Civil War: over 300,000, most of whom were civilians, were killed in the second civil war of 1993-2005. The conflict was between the two principal ethnic groups, the majority Hutus and the Tutsis. Simon started work in Burundi in 1998 and set up the Great Lakes Outreach (GLO) organisation in 2003. Indigenous groups are supported financially by GLO to bring healing and restoration within the country, reaching out to the military, the dispossessed, prostitutes, street children and the poor by combining evangelism with transformative social programmes.
