Pastor Wilson Charges Burundi Government
« on: May 21, 2019, 11:08:03 AM »
In a recent ANN article Pastor Wilson brought to our attention a difficulty with church leadership in Burundi that has now involved the nations leadership getting involved. Pastor Wilson sees this as a violation of religious liberty since some of the church's leaders have been incarcerated. This is something I believe we are going to see more of. Because this involves difficulties within the church, we are discussing the matter in the Laodicea "SDA" Forum.

From the Office of the President, Seventh-day Adventist World Headquarters, Silver Spring, Maryland, United States

We have received very encouraging news and are happy to indicate that all Seventh-day Adventist detainees in Burundi have been released. Prayers have been answered.  We thank the Government of Burundi for its role and specifically one of its Members of Parliament, Honorable Justin Niyobuhungiro, for facilitating the releases. Thank you to Seventh-day Adventist church members worldwide and others who have been praying earnestly for the detainees, for the church in Burundi, and for the Burundi government leaders. We look forward to continued improvement in this sensitive situation dealing with the church and its governance. We encourage you to keep praying that God will provide for a helpful resolution to the challenges being faced and for peace and prosperity in Burundi.

There is more to the Burundi situation than revealed in the two ANN articles. The Burundi Union Mission has not been able to find unity in its churches. Laodicea Forum has more information.
