The Rev. Christian Senyoni gave a message of hope for God’s healing and reconciliation at the National Day of Prayer meeting Thursday at City Hall.

“I am grateful that I survived, but I believe this comes with a tremendous responsibility,” Senyoni said, telling the crowd of his survival during the Rwandan genocide of 1994. “… (God) saved me so I could continue to tell of his goodness.”
