Janvier was born and raised in Burundi, East Africa. He became Deaf at a young age due to a mysterious illness. Later, he found the DMICOC Facebook page and reached out to a couple of disciples in LACOC through Facebook Messenger. Eventually, he decided to study the Bible. He would study the Bible on video from Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp with disciples from Los Angeles every Saturday. He was on fire and has been so hungry to learn God’s words. His eyes opened and he was full of joy, knowing he found the truth. On February 23, 2021, he decided to let Jesus become his Lord and Savior.
His heart is on fire and zealous to serve God by serving Deaf kids and people in the villages in his country and one of his goals is to spread the good news about Jesus in his Deaf community.
