Dear ITEM Prayer Partners, I had the great privilege of being able to meet and spend some time this (Saturday) morning with our Burundi team along with our DRC assistant coordinator Joel Mananga.

Not a bad place to have a meeting! Certainly, it is better than those ubiquitous cheesy nature backgrounds on Zoom.
