In 1994, members of the Hutu tribe in Rwanda took up arms against the Tutsi tribe. In 100 days, the Hutu tribe slaughtered over 800,000 Tutsis using only spears, clubs and machetes. It was genocide, and few Tutsis survived. Immaculee Ilibagiza was one of the few, but most all of her family and friends were killed.
In the years since the genocide, Immaculee has come to grips with what happened, and what she can do about it. She has written a book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Genocide, and has been telling her story around the world. Immaculee is regarded as one of world's leading speakers on peace, faith, and forgiveness and she will share her message through a retreat at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament, 124 N. Roosevelt, Wichita Kansas. It begins Friday evening, July 14th, (4:30-9:00) and concludes Saturday morning, July 15th, (8:30-12:30).
We look forward to having you join us for this wonderful retreat opportunity.
