JOURNEY

    • Jan 25, 2018 – Samuel said the book he read recently that he couldn’t put down until he finished was Doing Work That Matters by Justin Zoradi.
    • Dec 18, 2017 – On Christmas, Samuel says, Rwandans eat meals that have meat and dance a traditional dance called Umuhamirizo! A word Samuel thinks his friends would describe him as is “competitive” because he is always seeking for the best solutions to any problem.
    • Nov 11, 2017 – Prudence is thankful for the gift of life God has given him. He is looking forward to celebrating Christmas because he loves spending time with his family!
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Samuel spent his summer at home helping his parents, and the most memorable time for him was when he had an excellent performance in his high school national examination. He is excited about being a student at the University of Rwanda as well as being one of the These Numbers Have Faces scholars, and is looking forward to learning from both of them.

BIO

Early in life, Samuel’s family and neighbors saw talent and potential in him. As a part of a large family it was not easy to meet everyone’s needs, but Samuel’s desire for long-term change encouraged him to persist through those obstacles.
Samuel noticed early that there was a huge gap between those who needed dental care and the number of people qualified to deliver it. He is excited to join the small number of Dental Surgeons in Rwanda after completing his university degree. But on top of meeting dental needs, Samuel dreams of giving back to his family — rebuilding their homes, providing financial support, and helping his young siblings complete their education.

Samuel spends his spare time coordinating his local “Youth Impact Mission Club” coordinating other young people in his community to serve others.
