Founder of ‘Bridges of Hope’ Bringing Hopes in Lives of Hopelessby Bianca Rodriguez Content Creator
Daniel Zopoula, who was born Boura, acquired his basic education at a boarding school in Diebougou. Later, Daniel proceeded to pursue an M.Div at Ambrose University from Canada, where he embarked on a journey to become a beacon of hope for the hopeless.
Daniel spent the early years of his life as a shepherd, rancher, cotton picker, and preacher from Burkina Faso. While in Saskatchewan, Daniel encouraged the establishment of a humanitarian association called Bridges of Hope International Network of Development Agencies Ltd. After completing his theological education in Canada with Ambrose University, Daniel started itinerant work in different areas in Canada and around the globe while promoting Bridges of Hope International Network. He at that point Settled in Lethbridge Alberta in the Spring of 2000 with his better half Sara Zopoula, where he pastored at River of Life Community Church and later at First Congregational Church prior to planting another congregation on January 28, 2008, the Miz City Church Lethbridge.
Daniel's vision made what is known as Bridges of Hope International Network of Development Agencies in the Summer of 1995 as a philanthropical venture with a dream to utilize business to battle poverty around the globe while making an alliance of individual and associations to network for the end of poverty relief and community empowerment among the least fortunate countries of the world. He's been dynamic in philanthropic work and research from that point forward and has encouraged a network of more than 100 associations and ministries in more than 20 nations. “My mission behind Bridges of Hope is to bring people who care enough about humanity to come in front and serve with an aim to eradicate poverty from the face of this world. After all, it is mere hunger, a pang of desperate hunger, that leads to all the evils in society; only if this root cause is resolved we can make this world a better place. Therefore, with Bridges of Hope, I desire to enlighten the lives of people who are in the pits of hopelessness that poverty brings with it,” says Daniel Zopoula.
Besides his work with Bridges of Hope International Network, Daniel has written a book on Marriage: The All For Nothing Marriage, Why your marriage will murder you before death do you part. Distributed by FrisenPress and Distributed by The Ingram Book Company. This is in light of the reality that hopelessness is not just limited to people with hunger but also extends to the couple who lack spirituality and desire to put effort into their marriage. “Marriage can be splendor that brings forth immense joy in your life. My life is the testimony of this fact, for my wife Sara has been my rock, supporting me to fulfill my desires to make this place hopeful. Yet, marriage only works to bring joy when you are whole-heartedly contributing to making it work. Realizing this fact, and thinking how powerful the bond of marriage is to make impossible possible, I decided to bring hope in the lives of hopeless couples, who are lost in their journey due to lack of spiritual direction,” says Daniel Zopoula. “Christ has done a work in my heart that I surrender my whole, trivial self to serve humanity, hoping that one day, we human can realize that this world can truly be a better place to reside in, a place where we are all united in love,” he adds.Undoubtedly, with his extensive endeavors that centers around making this world a better for individuals, couples, and communities to live and relish their life in, Daniel Zopoula is exactly the kind of people the world needs desperately.
