The Decision to Handle Rejection

Rev. Manson B. Johnson

The Big Idea: Endurance is the key to achieving challenging goals in life.“Man’s rejection can be God’s direction.  God sometimes uses the rejection of hateful people to move us to a new place or assignment–where we wouldn’t have thought of going on our own.

Rwandan genocide survivor’s story reaches all the way to America: A story of pain turned into hope

Written by Grace Hunsberger on 13 August 2012.

NEW YORK – At age 14, Consolee Nishimwe suffered insurmountable physical and emotional torture during the Rwandan genocide. Her newly-released memoir, Tested to the Limit: A Genocide Survivor’s Story of Pain, Resilience and Hope, will inspire readers to remain hopeful despite life’s circumstances, and to live with love and tolerance for each other.

 

In 1994, Nishimwe and her family went into hiding for three months to evade capture and certain death. She was infected with HIV due to a sexual assault experienced during the genocide. In the end, she miraculously survived with her mother and younger sister, but her father and three brothers were brutally murdered.

Nishimwe’s life is a testament of hope and faith and provides lessons that will help those who may be coping with their own difficulties.

Now living in New York, she is a committed speaker on the genocide, a defender of global women's rights and an advocate for other genocide survivors.

“I hope my story will help people to grow in love for their fellowmen and to refocus their views about others who were born different to them, and to accept them for who they are,” Nishimwe said.
