Starting in 1994, Dr Rhiannon Lloyd pioneered a workshop called ‘Healing the Wounds of Ethnic Conflict’ in post-genocide Rwanda. This workshop has now been attended by well over 2 million people from all over the world, and from some of the darkest and most conflicted countries. The workshop is now called ‘Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations’.

Fire Lilies: Finding Hope in Unexpected Places is her story. It demonstrates that for God’s children, nothing is wasted, and that He can skilfully craft all our experiences to eventually bring blessing in totally unexpected ways. Rhiannon relates how positive and negative early experiences, including illness in the family, feeling inferior as a Welsh person, and working through doubts about her faith – secretly seeing God as unloving, unjust, even cruel – all prepared her for pioneering a healing and reconciliation ministry in some of the world’s darkest situations.

Here are some video resources for you to use as you see fit. They include a free teaching video that goes with the Healing Hearts, Transforming Nations material. Then there is another free video that gives a view into the Hidden Scars that Rwanda still carries as a result of the genocide in 1994, but with some encouraging testimonies of God’s breakthrough in this land. Lastly, we recommend ‘As We Forgive’ which is a powerful story of how forgiveness can occur even amongst the most tragic and painful of experiences.

Please use them in whatever way that you can to further assist you in the ministry of healing and reconciliation. Remember to let us know your stories and testimonies.

as we forgive

Could you forgive a person who murdered your family? This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about Rosaria and Chantal—two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. The subjects of As We Forgive speak for a nation still wracked by the grief of a genocide that killed one in eight Rwandans in 1994. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases, the government has returned over 50,000 genocide perpetrators back to the very communities they helped to destroy. Without the hope of full justice, Rwanda has turned to a new solution: Reconciliation.
