Gary and I are home again in the U.S, and it is difficult to readjust to life here.  Over 100 people have been killed in Bujumbura so far in the protests and in assassinations, hundreds have been injured and imprisoned, many tortured, and over 200,000 people have fled the country.  The president was "elected" for a third term.  Of course, the other candidates withdrew their names in protest over the charade of an election.  We have no idea what the future holds for these good people of Burundi.  We can only pray that life will improve for them, that they will eventually get a government that will help them progress.  We leave part of our hearts with our friends in Bujumbura.  We are eternally grateful for the blessing that was our mission, and say " Dieu te benisse!"
