burundi3Overseas Partners:

Great Lakes Outreach, Harvest for Christ, and Youth for Christ

We have a very special partnership with these mission organizations in Burundi. While God has sent us to Burundi to heal people’s mouths, it is amazing to see God’s children in Burundi leading their people to follow Christ. These partners help us organize and run the logistics of the clinic, but more importantly, they share the gospel with the patients while they wait in line for hours, and many of them accept Christ during this time. God’s presence is evident in the clinic as our hands perform his work.
