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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the course of meeting several Africans who attended the Rouners' 'workshops' in their native countries.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
find a way to vastly expand its reach to many, many desperately needy Africans.
