Love Prevails

Twenty-five years ago in April 1994, a savage campaign of genocide was unleashed against the Tutsis of Rwanda. In the space of a hundred days,  a million people were left dead. This personal narrative tells the story of two survivors—Jean Bosco and his fiancée Christine. While most of their family members perished, they found refuge in what  later become famous as the “Hotel Rwanda.”

Their story of survival is at once a love story and a harrowing inside look at what happens when a country is overrun by evil. But it is also a story of faith—an effort to find God in the midst of horror—and of the subsequent struggle to find meaning, healing, and reconciliation.
