This week is the 10th anniversary of the Rwanda massacres. The Christians in Rwanda and especially the leadership of the Anglican Church have been deeply involved in the work of restoration subsequent to the violence.

A year ago I heard +John Ruchyhana - a retired Bishop from Rwanda - speak of some young relatives leaving his home during the massacres. He found out later that when they arrived at their home they were brutally killed. His response to this has been to come out of retirement and give leadership to Prison Fellowship and work to see some of the very men who killed his family members come to faith in Christ.

Here is a link to an excellent article from Christianity Today regarding the situation in Rwanda.

Peace, Peter+
