For those who do not believe in miracles

The resilience of a Rwandan woman who survived the genocide

By Hans Dekkers, Mama Lambert

Upon coming face-to-face with death, at the last moment, Beata Mukarubuga escapes its fearsome grasp. This hair-raising escape alone justifies the book's title, For Those Who Do Not Believe in Miracles, the biography of Beata Mukarubuga. This unbelievable tale chronicles the horrors of the genocide that broke out in 1994 in Rwanda, as seen through the eyes of Beata, a Tutsi woman who was one of its victims. Beata was on the run for three months with her one year-old son, Lambert, on her back. She survived the terrible slaughter, but lost everything dear to her. Afterwards, Beata faced the nearly impossible task of building a new future for herself all alone. Yet, she showed amazing resilience, leaving her first name behind and going forward in life as Mama Lambert. The reader will follow her difficult journey in which forgiveness, reconciliation, and a strong faith are the healing powers that form the basis for her renewed existence. Since 2002, Mama Lambert has been the head of counseling of Solace Ministries in Rwanda, where she supports genocide survivors in coming to terms with the genocide. In 2015, Mama found the courage to resume her studies and successfully completed a university course in theology at the Rwanda Institute of Evangelical Theology.
