5:40 – Finding God in the Middle of a Genocide

On the night of April 6, 1994, a plane carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana was shot down as it prepared to land, killing all aboard. The assassination was the catalyst for one of the most horrific genocides on the 20th century. Majority Hutus slaughtered the minority Tutsis and their Hutu sympathizers. Nearly one million people perished, roughly 20% of the country’s population and 70% of Tutsis in the country. Immaculée Ilibagiza is one of the survivors. She joins us to tell how her Catholic faith saved her life.
