Product Description

In November 1959, ethnic tensions in the East African nation of Rwanda ignited what would become the first wave of deadly pogroms against the Tutsi and a precursor to the horrific genocide of 1994 in which a million or more Rwandans were killed in a hundred days. But on that day in 1959, a five-year-old boy named Laurent Mbanda knew only three things: first, that the air was filled with smoke; second, that his father was missing; and third, that his frightened mother was telling him they had to run and hide.

From one refugee camp to another in Burundi, Mbanda and his family faced deprivation and near-constant discrimination because of their refugee status. Over the years--then and since--Mbanda has relied on his deep, abiding faith through myriad challenges and dangers, including a six-month exodus at the age of twenty during which he walked from Burundi to Kenya--a journey of 500 miles--in hopes of getting an education that would allow him to pursue a calling to ministry.

From Barefoot to Bishop is a compelling story of faith, from being saved to being of service. This memoir will inspire church leaders and laity alike, and it will appeal to those with a passion for living life with a mission. It also will find an eager audience among those who are interested in servant leadership, social entrepreneurship, and grassroots initiatives to help the poor in developing countries such as Rwanda, where the Shyira Diocese has partnered with OneEgg.org to improve nutrition for its preschool students.

The message of this book is profound in its power and simplicity: Even in the most harrowing circumstances, trusting that "the Lord will provide" is never in vain.
