With a lot of work over time and substantial reliance on God, the Rwandan people have made amazing strides in this direction. Over a relatively short time, the women at the conference have developed obvious bonds with one another.

When the women arrived on Monday, one woman said this is her place of peace and comfort -- she felt it the moment she entered the front gate. Another expressed her gratitude for all that we've been teaching and their conferences. Since the last time she now knows how to talk about her trauma and come alongside others in their healing. This beautiful young woman expressed her deep gratitude and tears streamed down her face.
Bill Hybels once said, "Everyone wins when a leader gets better." This is the dream of ALARM and our teaching team, and with your help, we are making this dream a reality.
