Rema have been able to distribute hundreds of bibles to refugees and returnees thanks to donations from UK supporters. We are careful when distributing; we need to be sure that the individual can read! Some need reading glasses, which we also distribute if appropriate. Church Pastors, Sunday School teachers and those leading groups are a priority. Other bibles are left with the pastor to establish those in greatest need. Others have since been distributed mainly to returnees at conventions and evangelistic events across Burundi.
New Bible replacing old bibleBibles are very precious items and are highly valued, but some have seen many years of hard use, with many pages missing.
