Our Mission to Burundi, Africa

Burundi, AfricaCivil war torn, Burundi, once known as Urundi, was controlled by Germany from 1884 and by Belgium from 1919 until gaining its independence in 1962. The original inhabitants of Burundi were the Twa, a Pygmy people who now make up only 1% of the population.

Today, the population is divided between the Hutu and the Tutsi. While the Hutu and Tutsi are considered to be two separate ethnic groups, both groups speak the same language, have a history of intermarriage and share many cultural characteristics. However, Burundi's recent history is replete with bloody battles between the Hutu and Tutsi, and those ethnic conflicts and disagreements continue today.

The future of Burundi is somewhat bleak, as less than 50% of children attend school, and HIV/AIDS is almost out-of-control. In addition, basic foods and medicines are in short supply. With a high population density and very limited natural resources, most of the citizens remain economically suppressed, and resign themselves to subsistence agricultural farming.

In 2002, Pastor Maxwel,l with a missions team from the Cleveland Baptist Association, traveled to Burundi to learn more about the country, its people and their needs. Our goal was to establish a sister-church relationship with the Kinama Baptist Church of Burundi. Since that time Affinity has sent several mission teams to Burundi, providing assistance in educational, construction and medical ministries. We have assisted in the construction and financing of the Kinama Baptist Church Multi-Service Center building that was dedicated in 2006.

John 4:19

"In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the satisfaction for our sins."
