If you read Immacul e s riveting autobiographical account of her survival of the Rwandan genocide, Left to Tell Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust, and wondered if her troubles were over, think again They had only just begun.Led by Faith is her painful personal account of life after the massacre of over a million Tutsi during the span of three months in 1994 Officially the killing spree was over, but the suffering, dying, hatred and bigotry went on As did the unending need for forgiven [...]
I read Left To Tell the month before moving to Rwanda It was remarkable to see the incredible faith of someone who had lived such tragedy, but a little difficult to imagine the reality Reading Led By Faith was a different experience altogether I currently live across the street from Pastor Murinzi s house where Immaculee hid for three months When she speaks of killers in the street, it is almost impossible to really believe that she is literally talking about the dirt road in front of my house H [...]
Immaculee is an amazing person with a gift for prayer and a faith that, almost literally, moves mountains While this follow up book answers a few questions, I found in disappointing I think that Immaculee s point in writing this book isn t autobiographical She wants to inspire readers to forgive, pray and trust God As a Christian, I am inspired by her faith, but after reading Left to Tell, I wanted of Immaculee Immaculee is a wonderful storyteller when she is writing about prayer, miracles and [...]
I read this book in less than 24 hours as the stories were so compelling that it was hard to put down If anyone reads Immaculee s books without feeling her unabashed joy and tenacity for seeking God, their hearts are hardened I cannot begin to think of the things that Rwandans went through in the mid 1990 s, nor can I pretend my troubles are near that horrendous level Immaculee s experiences and deep seated need for forgiveness and repentance show me that it should be first and foremost my duty [...]
I met this lady once at a conference sponsored by Wayne Dyer She is a great lady with a great story A definite must read.
I actually have a few pages left to finish but I already know this is a spiritual classic for me and goes in my Top Favorite file.If you have not yet read Left To Tell , go back and read it either reading our Lady of Kibeho first or second and then finish up with Led by Faith.I could read a book by Immaculee every week She inspires me and her words recharge my spirit and lead me to strive to bring God into the world along the path that He has given to me She can t help but to cause gratitude to [...]
I didn t think I could possibly like this book as well as her first, Left to Tell , but I was pleasantly surprised today Where the first book covers her story during the genocide, this one picks up with her position at the UN and follows her life up to publishing her first book with all the tragedy and miracles she experiences along the way So I was thinking Usually life altering trials are two fold, right There s the initial crisis, say, the hours and days after the tsunami, or the weeks or mon [...]
Es un libro conmovedor.En algunas ocasiones me era d ficil pensar que lo que relata la autora pudiera pasar en nuestros tiempos, tal pareciera que me estaban contando una historia de una guerra que sucedi hace miles de a os y no en 1994.Me encanta la inocencia y a veces ingenuidad que la autora transmite en sus p rrafos, era tanta mi curiosidad por saber si lo que se contaba era real que busqu mas de unas vez informaci n acerca de la autora, su ciudad natal, y el genocidio el sentimiento lo tran [...]
Sequel to LEFT TO TELL and I liked it just as much This is Ilibagiza s account of adjusting to life after the holocaust without losing the faith and spirituality she had attained during three months in hiding She tells amazing stories about refusing to succumb to hatred and despair in a country ravaged by slaughter and the ensuing economic and social repercussions She recounts her ability and willingness to rely wholly on God in making decisions and in moving forward along a path that eventually [...]
A riveting memoir by a survivor of the 1994 genocide in Rwanda I didn t know much about that event before reading this, but you can t find a eyewitness account This book focuses mostly on the spiritual effects of the genocide in Immaculee s life she lost almost her entire family , and her journey to forgiveness Her beautiful spirit is really inspiring to me and spurs me on to a intimate and constant relationship with God.
This book one a picture of the genocide in Rwanda and one person s struggle to re kindle her country, her faith and a sense of family It is horrific, but also gives one a sense of reconciliation that a nation can find.
I liked this book even better than Left to Tell It taught me that God has a hand in every aspect of our lives and works for the good of those who love Him.
This was a really great book It is an incredible story of the authors life and healing following the horrors of the genocide in Rawanda The book is just as awesome as Left to Tell.
The follow up book to Left to Tell is a great book As in her first book, Immaculee continues teaching the world about what happened in Rwanda and about faith in God This book is not just educational but also heart wrenching and enjoyable to read Immaculee discusses what it was like during the following years after the war began and during the rebuilding of Rwanda When she writes you can see her love for God, her country and her fellow country Women men It s a beautiful tale of faith, growth, lov [...]
I could listen to Immaculee all day long The story of her survival of the Rwandan Holocaust and her ability to forgive her enemies leaves me speachless It truly is one if the most touching stories I ve ever read She is such an amazing example to me I read Left to Tell many years ago I just reread it and discovered that she had written a follow up book So glad I found this.
Incredible book that tells about this very courageous woman who managed to forgive.
It was depressing.
A beautiful account of placing trust in God to love and forgive.
Ilibagiza is an outstanding person If people think like her, all the killings would not have occurred in the first place and if they do, rising and healing after them would be bearable.
Led By Faith was a touching and inspiring story This book encourages me to continue praying, believe and have faith All things are possible with prayer and faith which also comes with great patience When you pray your prayer might not be answered at your request but it will when God believes the time right Immaculee s story open my eyes to believe in myself and I do what I believe is right for me not what I think others like It s your life so we have to take control over what is right for us So [...]

After reading Left To Tell I had to read the follow up of Immaculee Ilibagiza s harrowing account of survival and faith during the Rwandan holocaust of 1994 What I found was a story that sometimes we never hear of learning how to live again and how to live again in the midst of great loss and pain, make that indescribable loss and pain.Well written and clearly told, Ilibagiza s story takes us into her challenging and overwhelming task of not just continuing to trust God but learning to trust aga [...]
