—Randy Hartley and Eric Welch
In 1994, the Mwizerwa family lived through the horrific genocide in Rwanda where nearly one million people were killed in just one hundred days - including their parents and most members of their extended families. By the grace of God, William’s family (his wife, Ebralie, and their four children) survived the massacre. Running from their home without taking anything, they made a dangerous journey to Nairobi, Kenya. William came to the United States in May of 1998 and became very active at First Presbyterian Church in Nashville.
