  Building Hope: Burundi Partnership

Diocesan Youth Social Justice Advocate, Lauren Milner, recently participated in a mission trip to the Diocese of Buye in Burundi, Africa, where she helped deliver essential items to an orphanage. She was welcomed by Bishop Sixbert, who visited our diocese last May, and the Macumi family. You can read about Lauren's experience in the October issue of The Messenger. Below are some of the photos Lauren took while touring the Diocese of Buye.

We, the Bishops of the Anglican Dioceses of Edmonton and Buye, on behalf of our people do make a solemn commitment to walk together in faith.

We pray that God will bless this partnership, will help us to experience through it  the grace and peace of Jesus Christ, and will use it to make us more effective in our  sharing of the good news.

It is our prayer that through our partnership one with another  that we might  grow in mutual affection and communion,  seek a more profound experience of truth,  build up the Church in unity  and give glory to Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Nous, les évêques des diocèses Anglicans d'Edmonton et Buye, au nom de nos personnes prenons un engagement solennel pour marcher ensemble dans la foi.

Nous prions que Dieu bénira cette association, nous aiderons à éprouver par elle la grace et la paix du Jésus-Christ, et les emploierons pour nous rendre plus efficaces dans notre partage des bonnes nouvelles.

C'est notre prière qui par notre association ensemble que nous pourrions nous développer dans l'affection mutuelle et la communion, chercher une expérience plus profonde de la vérité, accumuler l'église dans l'unité et donner gloire au Jésus-Christ à notre sauveur.
