Since learning of this remarkable organization two years ago, my wife and I have contributed frequently. Its two founders and leading lights, Rev. Dr. Arthur Rouner, Jr. and his wife, Molly, travel twice yearly to Rwanda, Burundi, and Kenya, where they bring the healing message of reconciliation to Africans who have suffered horribly during the Rwandan genocide of 1994 and in the course of other violent tribal conflicts. They are two of the most selfless individuals we have had the privilege of knowing. They quite literally and regularly change hardened hearts and provide deeply aggrieved people with newfound hope for a better life. In addition to their African work, they also minister to Native Americans living on reservations, many mired in a world of poverty and despair. I cannot commend their honorable work highly enough.
