Edmond Bayisabe, youth co-ordinator for the diocese of Bujumbura in Burundi, visited several dioceses in the Anglican Church of Canada last fall. He was invited by the youth council of the The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), which sent three members to Burundi in 2009.
Bayisabe said the church in Burundi is working to build peace and reconciliation in a country torn apart by civil war and ethic conflict. Their faith, he said, has to be lived. “We have to find our strength and inspiration from the gospel, not only preaching, no, just put the gospel into concrete actions, community work. That’s how we do things.”
