A Refugee's Vision

Pastor Jean Pierre Gatera is from Burundi, but he never lived there. His parents had fled their homeland and were refugees in Rwanda when he was born. Pastor Gatera was forced to flee Rwanda in 1994 during the infamous genocide.

While a refugee for nearly 20 years in Kakuma refugee camp, God gave Pastor Gatera a vision of refugees reaching nations with the good news of Jesus Christ. Pastor Gatera resettled to the US in 2016. He joined International Association for Refugees in 2017 in order to continue pursuing his vision.

Meet Pastor Gatera below to hear more about his story and his remarkable vision. [Duration 2:40 minutes]
