Dan Bizima* – Rwanda

Area Director

Dan’s family fled the genocide in Rwanda to the relative safety of being refugees in Tanzania. His family were not believers, and he was desperate for solace. He struggled with addiction for five years, getting “very drunk but not feeling happy.” One day as he was passing a Church, he felt his “heart saying ‘Enter.” I tried to ignore the voice but it continued.”

That day Dan heard the good news of Christ. “It could only have been God that led me there.” Thus began Dan’s pursuit of Jesus. Dan is now an area director in Kigali. He is a meek, kind, and humble servant who stands strong in his faith as he daily walks with kids for Jesus.
