  • Turning the other cheek

    What do you do if somebody murders 45 members of your family, including your sister and her seven children?

        That’s what happened to Pastor Deo Gashagaza, of Living Church, an independent church in Rwanda. In 1994 members of the Hutu tribe massacred members of the Tutsi tribe, and any Hutus that got in their way. An estimated 800,000 people died during a 100 day period. He visited this area recently speaking about his ministry.
        “This situation was too bad for my heart,” said Pastor Gashagaza.
