Sunday services went well today, Chris preached at a church in Bujumbura city with Pastor Leonard Tuyishimire who pastors the Hope Centre children and Hugh, Clare, Anna and her dad (also Chris) went to a church in Gatumba. We were treated to a meal of Ugali, Meat and veg after the 3 hour service was over. We spent a few hours after the service at the Club du Lac Tanganyika a beach resort on the shores of the lake where we had a soda and an enjoyable chat and relaxed. In the evening we watched the final of the Euro 2012 match on the laptop.
We have just received an email from Kenya to tell us of a horrific attack on a church there by Al Shabab, this has all happened as the Kenyan president is in Burundi for the 50 years of independence celebrations. Our email says 17 are killed in the attack but BBC say two killed and a few others injured.
