Immaculée Ilibagiza grew up in Rwanda—a country divided by tribal allegiances. During the genocide in 1994, she was forced into hiding to avoid being raped, mutilated or killed. She hid in a bathroom at a local pastors house with seven other women for three months. Once it was safe to come out, she started working at a U.N. office, comforting a number of children who were orphaned by the genocide and later emigrated to the United States, where she is now a speaker and an author. Her first book about her life in Rwanda, called Live to Tell, sold half a million books and went on to become a New York Times best-seller.
Her latest book, Led by Faith: Rising from the Ashes of the Rwandan Genocide, further explores how her religious faith helped her rebuild her life after this horrible tragedy.
On this episode of Change Nation, Ilibagiza explains how her faith was strengthened in the face of genocide, and what you can do to improve your relationship with your higher power.
