Jean was born in 1993 in Burundi, East Africa. He is of the Hutu tribe of peoples. When civil war broke in Rwanda and Burundi, Jean’s family fled south as refugees to a camp in their neighbouring country of Tanzania. Jean was just a young child when they left, and it wasn’t without casualty. Jean’s father was one of the 300,000 killed in Burundi, 800,000 in Rwanda. Jean’s family and extended family are of Muslim background. Life didn’t get any easier living as refugees in Tanzania.

After Jean's spring 2015 trip, he has committed to return to Malawi to bring change to the people through his hope in Jesus. The people he has connected with are in need of clean water resources and bibles in their language. Please consider giving towards these two projects to bring abundant life to the people in Malawi.
