Burundi Mission Opportunity

For six years, many churches and individuals from TM gave sacrificially and generously to a great need in Burundi.  The result:  orphans housed and cared for; leaders trained and educated; churches planted; and thousands baptized. Along with International Ministries (IM), we are thrilled that the avenues and opportunities for continued partnership are re-established.  IM excels at facilitating mission, and will be administrating mission support and future involvement of TM in the Burundi mission.
