Test Blog Post #2
We have rooted ourselves within these impoverished communities and have taken a holistic approach toward restoration and empowerment through adopting orphaned and abandoned children into our TCOAC family, a medical clinic that focuses on maternal care and child survival, a social program that supports people that are in dire need and biblical training that empowers and equips leaders in local churches. In the future, we also have plans to expand with a school, mission’s base and various income generating projects.
TCOAC’s base is located on 10 acres of land in two nearby locations in the northern mountains of Burundi in a village called Bukeye (population 80,000). We have both national staff and missionaries from around the world who have come and laid down their lives to serve in TCOAC. We believe in going low and slow in the community and building everything from the place of relationship. As a community, we are in pursuit to love God with all our hearts, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbor as ourselves. In all we do, we want to love deeply and reveal Jesus to the poor, broken and weary. Our approach is Jesus. Our destination, Jesus. Our solution is Jesus.
In a context where life expectancy is low, families bury their small children, wounds from civil war are still near the surface, hunger and malnutrition is rampant, and education is easily abandoned we have no other approach than to look to God. For He is the Creator and has a beautiful redemptive story to unfold here in Burundi, we are just simply a part of that story in this small corner of the earth.
