Gilbert recounts his upbringing in poverty, the descent of his homeland into bloodshed, and his miraculous escape from torture and almost certain-death at the hands of his Hutu captors. Listen as the two discuss Gilbert’s journey of hope and healing as he built a new life in the United States; a life built on faith, family, and running.
