Growing up in Harare, in a section called Mufakose, Dakarayi was brought up to be passive about his walk with Christ. Both his parents encouraged their children to attend church, but never took action themselves. It was Dakarayi’s passionate younger sister who begged him to attend church with her, and finally, one day he did. The local church happened to be having a revival that week, and the Lord reached out and called to Dakarayi’s heart. In 1986, Dakarayi committed his life to Christ. Through the ministry at his school, he received discipling that carried with him through his young adult years.
