Burundi is a small country to the southwest of Lake Victoria. It is bordered by Rwanda on the north, Democratic Republic of Congo and Lake Tanganyika on the west, and Tanzania on the south and east. It has recently emerged from a lengthy civil war. The total devastation by fire of Bujumbura's (the capital's) central market in early 2013 has significantly affected the national economy. Despite these setbacks, Burundi remains a beautiful country in which there is real spiritual hunger.

Report of a church Leaders training held on at Rutana and Muzye from 28th of August to 1st September 2023.
We thank God that through His grace we have been able to train church leaders from the province of Rutana on the book of JAMES from the date 28th of August to 1st September 2023. At Rutana 25 people and Muzye 33 participated in this training. During the training, to explain who is this James the writer of this book, its content, and looked at the parallels with the teachings of Jesus Christ. The trainees realized that the writer is really the brother of Jesus Christ because they use the same language. To mean that they know each other very well. They also found that this book is teaching us about our daily living as born again Christians live a Christ centred lives. They learned and understood many things about the most important issues of life, such as: testing, trials, and temptations; prayer; the sin of partiality; the nature of true, living faith; control of the tongue; wisdom from above versus wisdom not from above; indwelling sin and its outward manifestations; the sin of autonomy and its outward manifestations; and true faithfulness. They discovered how the first two chapters summarize the whole book.
As usual in our program, before starting a new lesson, we give our students a precious moment to share with others what they have been able to put into practice we had learned so far. In this way, they exchange experiences.
2. I was so interested in the way sexual relations are prepared, the five love languages, the dialogue between husbands and wives, etc. After the training, I tried to put some of the above-mentioned points into practice, including the one on sexual relations, etc. My dear friends, you can imagine what happened next! This night was unprecedented. We did miracles in bed. Let's cheer louder for Rema Burundi who by the grace of God this training has come to us. We've decided to pass on the good news in our church and community.
Alexis NITEREKA Pastor of Pentecostal Church thanks Rema Burundi very much for this training as this book of James is concerned. “I have learned many things and especially about my daily living as a pastor how I should live the way this book is telling me. I personally learned and took time to learned many things many things about the most important issues of life and I have decided to change. Please don’t ask me many things. But I know what I told God this morning during prayers. I am going to do something new in the church I am leading”.

But this course has really come at the right time. We are going to do our best to heal many couples starting by ours”.
We praise God that our trainees were very glad to follow the teachings on the book of Marriage and Parenting and have asked so many questions because this have challenged so many church leaders. It talks in details how spouses could live an enjoyable life which pleased God.Because Marriage is a plan of GOD.So,they need to be faithfull in marriage. Therefore a good marriage pleased to God.
