anger to grace


When I met her, Consulee was a 57-year-old wife and mother of five who was angry at God and had turned to alcohol for comfort. Her husband, a struggling farmer, had followed the Hutu-led government of 1994 and had participated in the genocide of Tutsi (fellow Rwandans). After the genocide, he was sentenced to five years in prison for participating in it, and their land was confiscated. Consulee protested that he had only done what the government told him and now they were being punished. Her oldest son had taken care of her while her husband was in prison and had faithfully prayed for her.
