In 1999 Simon Guillebaud went to Burundi, probably the most dangerous country on earth, where he pulled an evangelistic team together to reach the youths of the streets. Several colleagues died. God honoured their efforts. Hundreds found faith. Miracles became almost a daily occurrence. Although Simon had not expected to survive, God had other plans. A lady called Lizzie was willing to share his tough life: they now have three children. To empower local people, Simon determined to construct the best conference centre in Burundi. The centre was built without incurring debts or paying bribes. It is now open and already profitable. Simon comments: 'The book combines prayer letters, diary entries and reflections from ten years in a war zone. It covers witchcraft, miracles, evangelism, Islam, orphans, street kids, aids, business for mission, and stories of triumphant faith in the midst of hideous suffering.'
