Rising Above the Storms – Alphonsine’s Story and Passion
If you’ve been reading 26 Letters for a while, you have met Alphonsine. She has shared bits of her story of surviving and overcoming the horrors of the 1994 Rwandan genocide and of God’s awesome provision in her adult life.
Alphonsine now lives and works in the US and has a passion to use her life experience to help others. The primary goal of her non-profit organization Rising Above the Storms (R.A.S.) is to “reach out, encourage and inspire people who are hurting, abandoned, or challenged in life in any way. We aim to bring hope and motivation to rebuild a brighter and more positive tomorrow.”
I recently came across a video of one of her speaking engagements on youtube. I’m sharing it with you so you can see and hear this fantastic lady. Be encouraged by her story and the way God is using her to help others.
