Clear evidence of God's work in Burundi

In 1999 Simon Guillebaud went to Burundi, one of the most dangerous countries on earth, where he pulled together an evangelistic team to reach the youths of the streets. Several colleagues died--but God honored their efforts. Hundreds found faith and 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 Simon's difficult life, and they now have three children.

To empower local people, Simon determined to construct the best conference center in Burundi. Astonishingly the center was built without incurring debt or paying bribes. It is now open, in full use, and already profitable.

Simon comments: "The book combines prayer letters, diary entries, and reflections from ten years in a war zone, from very humble beginnings to a massively fruitful ministry. It covers witchcraft, miracles, evangelism, Islam, orphans, street kids, AIDS, business for mission, and stories of triumphant faith in the midst of hideous suffering. It includes dark times and disillusionments. It's real, vulnerable, and raw."
