“Hiding in a tiny bathroom with seven other women as machete-wielding killers hunted for her, Rwandan genocide survivor, Immaculée Ilibagiza, experienced a terror few can imagine. During these 91 days of confinement, anger and resentment were destroying Immaculée’s mind, body and spirit. Come and listen and reflect on how prayer transformed her life from fear to courage, hatred to love, and gave her the ability to forgive those who murdered her family. You will not want to miss this award-winning author’s life-changing, inspirational story of faith, hope and forgiveness.”
