Tulsans, A Must See- if you like stories of hope and forgiveness
A friend of mine passed this news on to me today. An author of one of the most riveting books I've read will be in Tulsa this week to speak at a church.
I must pass this opportunity along.
Immaculee Ilibagiza, the author of "Left to Tell- Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust" is going to be speaking this Wednesday night at St. Benedict Catholic Church, 2200 W. Ithica in Broken Arrow.
She is the woman that survived the Rwandan Genocide by hiding in a bathroom with 6 other women for 90 days while the Hutus used machetes to kill the Tutsis to death. She has a great message of survival and forgiveness.
It's not often we get to see someone in person who has survived such horrible circumstances, chosen to forgive and use the experience to inspire people.
I urge you to read her book.
And to come see her speak if you can!
