March 2, 2009

After stowing our luggage at ALARM our driver, Theo, took us to the Museum in Kigale.
ALARM is Africa Leadership and Reconciliation Ministry. It is largely a Baptist and Evangelical supported ministry and it is a congenial group. Their headquarters are in Dallas on Coit Road. They are working hard to heal Rwanda from the genocide of 1994.

The museum describes the state of Rwanda from 1895 to post genocide Rwanda. It was heartbreaking and we shed quite a few tears.

Hacked to death by machete.

No pictures allowed inside. 800,000 people killed in an area smaller than Maryland.

Where was God during all this?
