Edinburgh based Gospel music minister Eloho Efemuai took a trip to Burundi with CEO, Food for the Hungry Paul Cornelius. Also, Ian Johnson (FHUK), Anna who’s never been to Africa before and Liz who works for a Trust in UK. The trip was purposed to reach out to under privileged people in the Northern part of Burundi.
The outreach is part of Eloho’s ambassadorship duties, having being signed on to Food for the Hungry -UK, a Christian charity organisation. Eloho and her team went with the objective to reach out and see first hand how the efforts of Food for the Hungry – UK is of benefit to some of the world’s most vulnerable people in Ngozi, Burundi, one of the communities assigned to the UK arm of the organisation.
“When Sarah Smart first told me about the trip to Burundi last year I was so excited about it and after speaking with UJ Efemuai, I agreed to do it. I didn’t know what to expect and was quite anxious but the past  week has been the most amazing time of my life,” Eloho said while speaking on the outreach experience in Burundi.
Eloho had expanded her horizon in the media in 2017, launching Heartsong Live, an online radio where she promised to shed more lights on the details of her experience in Burundi.
“ I’d be sharing my experience on my show and possibly a blog post. But [this is] just to say thank you to everyone who prayed and encouraged me throughout. Also thank you to “Food for the Hungry UK” for the opportunity to see first hand the work that you do in the poorest of the poor communities. Proud to be an ambassador.”
For someone who one is almost certain has the right attitude to life because she has a smile for every season and it’s almost as if you can never catch her pressured; it comes as a surprise that she remarked that her perspective changed after the trip.
“So privileged to have been on this trip. Honestly the whole experience has been so humbling and my perspective to life has changed. This is God’s heart. And the warmth in the hearts of the people wow. Despite having nothing. Visited a church and sang “How Great Thou Art”. The congregation joined me and sang the chorus in ‘Kirundi’. How amazing!!
“There are loads of children like him in Burundi and several other places who will never have an education because their parents cannot afford it or who do not have access to sponsors or organisations like Food for the Hungry and others. You can make a difference in the lives of these ones. James 1:27 and Psalms 146:7-9. If you’re interested do get in touch. Let’s be the hands, feet, and voice of God practically,” she said as she calls on others to join in reaching out to the world.
