Heart of Healing for Burundi

Burundi is called the heart of Africa, and when you look at it on a map, you can see why. The small country is shaped very much like our body’s most vital organ. 

Learning to Lead by Serving

When I was in school, I thought I would be a doctor because I was good in science.

Since I was doing well, my parents sent me to a private high school that was also a Christian school, and the director, Freddy, was also the president of Youth for Christ. Freddy taught us a lot about leadership and the purpose of our lives. 

I didn’t know that God had a plan for my life. 

My parents weren’t believers, and I’d never thought about God designing me for certain things in life.

Social innovator and World Challenge scholarship student Adewunmi is dreaming of bringing communities a clearer vision of who God is.

As a child in Nigeria, I always saw poverty. Maybe 2% of the population is living with a ridiculous amount of money, and the other 98% are spinning their wheels and going in circles even though there is enough for everyone to have enough. 

It’s just a fact of living there, though it shouldn’t have to be.

The Fragile Church

I came to the US when I was 16, and I moved to New York City after college to work in the fashion industry.
