Il était une fois, une panthère (le Gabon). Un animal que la nature a doté d’une force, d’une perspicacité et d’une puissance que très peu d’animaux possèdent. En réalité, la panthère est un prédateur, un dominant. Fière et confiante de ses attributs, elle ne craint ni ne tremble devant personne, bien au contraire elle inspire la peur. Par un concours de circonstance, il se trouve que notre puissante panthère devait livrer un combat contre un animal qui est loin d’effrayer. Un oiseau et pas n’importe lequel, Une Hirondelle (Burundi). Animal doux, cet oiseau n’inquiète pas. Qui pourrait avoir peur d’une simple hirondelle ?

As we celebrated and prayed for the country of Burundi, our very own beautiful Burundian ladies shared their traditional dance!! .
This wasn't for a "missions service." In fact, we don't have a "missions month" at our church. WHY?
Because we believe in being a missional church and living a missional life 24/7 and 365 days. So, we have missions service throughout the year! 😁 🌎
BTW, did we mention our church is in Springfield, MO? Our city is beautiful diverse!

Three Schoolgirls In Burundi Spends The Weekend I Jail And Are Facing Five years In Jail For Drawing On Their President's Face In Their Textbooks.
The girls, who are all minors, aged 15, 16 and 17 were arrested and charged with 'insulting the head of state,' and would face up to five years in prison if found guilty. They were arrested with three other schoolgirls and a 13-year old boy. The boy was released immediately because he was below the age of criminal responsibility, while the three girls were released without charge.
The girls are still in custody for defacing photographs of President Pierre Nkurunziza in five textbooks belonging to their school,in five textbooks belonging to their school, despite the teachers pointing out that textbooks in Burundi's school system are often passed in between classes and it is, therefore, difficult to know who scribbled on the President's image in the first place.
School children in Burundi have previously been jailed in the past for similar offenses. In 2016, eight secondary school students for allegedly insulting Nkurunziza by writing phrases like "Get out" or "No to the 3rd term" on a picture of the President in a textbook, according to Human Rights Watch. Hundreds children were expelled from several schools for scribbling on the President's face in their books in the same year.
President Nkurunziza, who has been in office since 2005, was re-elected to a third term in 2015 despite massive protests and concerns over the legality of running beyond his second term. Burundi has been in turmoil since Nkurunziza in April 2015 sought a fiercely-contested third term in office. The violence has claimed at least 1,200 lives and displaced more than 400,000 people between April 2015 and May 2017, according to estimates by the International Criminal Court (ICC), which has opened an investigation.
