"It had never occurred to me that God might have other plans..."
When Chrissie Chapman moved to Burundi in 1990 to open a maternity clinic, she wasn't expecting to stay more than a couple of years. Twenty-five years later she recounts her remarkable experiences of God's guidance and provision.
Through years of civil war, when most expatriates left, Chrissie stayed. After a powerful encounter with God, when she saw the protection of angels at her mountainside clinic, she was then led into work with orphans caught up in the crisis. In addition to adopting three children herself, Chrissie opened a home for abandoned babies, which became CRIB (Children Rescued in Burundi).
As God stirred her heart to care for these lost children, Chrissie witnessed His faithfulness over and over again—in provision of homes and food, protection, and healing for traumatized children. Her story inspires us, as she reminds us that God really does do more than we could ever imagine.
