Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust




Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust
by Imaculee Ilibagiza

Immaculee Ilibagiza is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. This is her story of how she developed a close, personal relationship with God while hiding in a small bathroom with seven other women for three months.  Unable to talk with the other women for fear of being found, Immaculee spent her days praying and meditating. As she put her trust in God, miracles surrounded her and her faith gave her the strength needed to think clearly, move forward, and eventually forgive those that subjected her, her family, and her village with slaughter and terror.


This book taught me ~

1.  How to pray better.
2.  How to trust in God better
3.  How to forgive better.
4.  How to ask God specifically for what I need and know He is listening and will answer.

    You are doing such a great job!! Everything looks great, and works like it’s supposed which I know from experience is hard work. Keep it up. I’ll keep reading, and even feature your blog on mine soon. You’re keeping me inspired.
    p.s. So impressed you joined the link party. I want to, and since I used to be a librarian this is right up my alley, but I’m still biting my nails in nervousness that I won’t do it right and it’ll take me 3 days to correct it.
    p.p.s Did I use ll my apostrophes correctly? Ha! That’s hilarious!

      April. Hi. Thanks for the encouragement. This was my first link party and I have been really afraid of them. But guess what? It was so super simple that there was no need to be nervous. The link just walked me through the process. You should try it if you have a book to share. It was good practicing ground. I completely understand your 3 days to correct a problem fear ~ that’s how long it took me to get my site right again after the Pagelines update.
