Trained as a midwife, Chrissie Chapman went to Burundi in the eighties to open a maternity clinic and dispensary in a rural area of the country. She had been there just three years when a coup occurred, and the country descended into a state of civil war. It lasted for thirteen long years. During that time, God directed her to work with the orphans and widows. She started a center for abandoned babies and traumatized children and saw the Lord performing remarkable miracles in the lives of people who had lost everything. Chrissie adopted three children herself, and has raised more than fifty others to young adulthood. Again and again she has witnessed miracles of protection and provision. When the war started, Chrissie, her adopted children, and the health staff were living in a rural location on top of a mountain, in a healing center with maternity clinic and pharmacy. Every night there was gunfire, and every day people would come seeking refuge. One night, when she and David Ndarahutse, the mission director, were praying amid the fighting, David said, "Chrissie, look up." There were dozens of angels standing on top of the walls of the healing center. That was the night the angels came. "From that moment on," Chrissie records, "I have never experienced or felt fear for my life.
