“One man's incredible story of faith, hope and forgiveness in the Burundian Civil War”

Theodore Mbazumutima,Theo for short, lived a life like no other. Forced to flee his home country of Burundi in Great Lakes area of East Africa, Theo escaped the dangers of a civil war that was tearing his home apart. After the death of Hutu President Ndadaye, the Hutus and Tutsis found themselves spilling over into a conflict that was tearing Burundi apart.

All through this, through Theo’s dangerous escape, through encounters with mobs who wanted to kill him, through hunger and refugee camps and struggling to find courage, there is a God who provides for Theo in amazing ways. My Country Wept is as much an account of God’s provision as it is an amazing story of forgiveness and fleeing.

Theo soon finds himself in a place of safety, where he can study theology, but not long after feels God calling him back home to Burundi. To a place he barely made out alive.

Placing his trust in God, Theo creates REMA Ministries, an organization that exists to help those like Theo. Those who lost everything in the conflict, who are need of hope and provisions.

My Country Wept isn’t just the story of fleeing home. It’s a story of trusting God, of  holding close to hope, and of being a voice for peace in a land of war. The story of Theodore Mbazumutima is a challenge to all of us to keep out eyes on God, to trust him in whatever life throws at us, and to look for where God can move today.

This is the story of Theo, who left his home, and came back to bring hope in the darkest of times.

Publisher's Description

One man's amazing story of how God protected and provided for him in the midst of the Burundian civil war and brought him to a place of grace, forgiveness and restoration.

Theodore Mbazumutima was forced to flee from his native Burundi when tensions between Hutus and Tutsis increased after the death of Hutu President Ndadaye. His dangerous and incredible journey fleeing civil war is told in this page-turning, gripping account of God's miraculous intervention, protection and guidance.

Escaping murderous mobs, then getting away from a refugee camp, being granted access to a country where God would provide a place to study Theology, to Theo's return to help his own people, this is a truly stunning account of the provision of God, and of grace and forgiveness.

Theo is now Director of Rema Ministries, which has established itself as a peace-building organisation committed to the rights of people in forced displacement situations, particularly refugees, the internally displaced and returnees.
