Emmanuel & Grace Ndabarushimana

Restoring the Ruins of Burundi. Burundi is a small war-torn country in Central East Africa. For decades, Burundi has experienced bloodsheds due to tribal conflicts. The Gospel of Jesus is a message of healing and reconciliation. It has the power to reconcile. With this conviction in our hearts, we felt God compelling us to leave the comfort of Vancouver, Canada, and take this message of reconciliation and healing to the nation of Burundi. Please join us as we spread the message of reconciliation and healing!
