A church that was turned into the Mugonero Genocide Memorial, Rwanda

Then seven pastors Tutsi of seventh Day Adventist at the complex of Mugonero wrote and sent a letter to Elizaphan who was the President of Church, when they finished writing it they read it to a few people who were present in which I was among them. The letter read as follow:

Our dear leader, Pastor Elizaphan Ntakirutimana How are you? We wish you to be strong in all these problems we are facing. We wish to inform you that we have heard that tomorrow we will be killed with our families. We therefore request to intervene on our behalf and talk with Mayor. We believe that, with the help of God who entrusted you the leadership of this flock, which is going to be destroyed, your intervention will be highly appreciated, the same way as the Jews were saved by Ester. We give honor to you.
