    ITEM#: 11918062

    Immaculee Ilibagiza was born in Rwanda and studied electronic and mechanical engineering at the National University. She lost most of her family during the 1994 genocide. Four years later, she emigrated to the United States and began working at the United Nations in New York City. She is now a full-time public speaker and writer. In 2007 she established the Left to Tell Charitable Fund, which helps support Rwandan orphans.

    Immaculee holds honorary doctoral degrees from The University of Notre Dame and Saint John’s University, and was awarded The Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace 2007. She is the author, with Steve Erwin, of LEFT TO TELL: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

    For three months in the spring of 1994, the African nation of Rwanda descended into one of the most vicious and bloody genocides the world has ever seen. Immaculee Ilibagiza, a young university student, miraculously survived the savage killing spree that left most of her family, friends, and a million of her fellow citizens dead. Immaculee’s remarkable story of survival was documented in her first book, Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

    In Led By Faith,Immaculee takes us with her as her remarkable journey continues. Through her simple and eloquent voice, we experience her hardships and heartache as she struggles to survive and to find meaning and purpose in the aftermath of the holocaust. It is the story of a naive and vulnerable young woman, orphaned and alone, navigating through a bleak and dangerously hostile world with only an abiding faith in God to guide and protect her. Immaculee fends off sinister new predators, seeks out and comforts scores of children orphaned by the genocide, and searches for love and companionship in a land where hatred still flourishes. Then, fearing again for her safety as Rwanda’s war-crime trials begin, Immaculee flees to America to begin a new chapter of her life as a refugee and immigrant—a stranger in a strange land.

    With the same courage and faith in God that led her through the darkness of genocide, Immaculee discovers a new life that was beyond her wildest dreams as a small girl in a tiny village in one of Africa’s poorest countries.

    It is in the United States, her adopted country, where Immaculee can finally look back at all that has happened to her and truly understand why God spared her life . . . so that she would be left to tell her story to the world.

      Immaculee Ilibagiza's Led by Faith is a perfect Lenten read -- at least for me! Its theme of forgiveness fits into this time of year although I am sure I will reread it at other times as well. While we argue with people about petty things and sever friendships -- she had most of her family [literally] severed and she chose to forgive those who did it. I have suggested it to many others as I believe this lesson is critical for all of us.
