The Night the Angels Came: Miracles of Protection and Provision in Burundi follows the story of Chrissie Chapman, a trained midwife who went to Burundi in the nineties to open a maternity clinic and dispensary in a rural area of the country.
She had been there just three years when a coup was declared, 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 centre for abandoned babies and traumatised 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.
Today Chrissie divides her time. She often returns to Burundi, where she continues to care for the teenagers in her charge. As well as this, she also spends her time in England, Canada and America, where she speaks widely about the faithfulness and power of God.
