Refugee family finds new home, church

Greensboro, North Carolina

The world was a dark and sometimes hopeless place for Godson Bahabwa during the 12 years that he lived in the Osire Refugee Camp in Namibia.

Violence that started in the Rwandan Genocide of 1994 spilled across the borders into neighboring countries, including the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where Bahabwa was growing up. Violence flared here and there for many years.

Bahabwa’s father was a pastor, who raised his own family also to worship the Lord. He often taught his children that even when life was hard, they needed to trust God and remain faithful in following Him. This message carried him through the darkest days of life in the refugee camp.
