In April 1994, ten-year-old Beatrice Smith came face to face with the horrors of the Rwandan genocide as crazed machete-wielding killers burst into her family’s home, lusting for blood.
Barely escaping with their lives, Beatrice and her family suddenly found themselves destitute refugees. Wandering from country to country in a desperate search for safety, the comfortable life they had once enjoyed became a distant memory. Penniless and vulnerable, they encountered moments of heart-wrenching despair and seemingly insurmountable challenge, but also witnessed God’s incredible provision and miraculous rescue.
Now thankfully settled in the UK, Beatrice reflects on the tumultuous events that brought her here and how God worked healing and restoration in her life. The Search for Home is a deeply moving, faith-affirming story that gives much-needed insight into the plight of millions of refugees today.
