about

João and Nora Matwawana, Angolans by birth and Canadians by adoption, tell their story in the first person. Major portions of their lives were lived in a context of armed violence. They and their six children became refugees twice. They know personally the hardships suffered by the victims of war. Personal faith, described in very practical terms, has allowed them to live at peace in the midst of peril. Furthermore, they have developed the gift of communicating their experiences to others in ways that lift and restore those whom they meet. Taught to hate by his grandfather and taught to love by his father, João himself found a personal resolution of these tensions which changed his life. He then matured through experiences in Angola, the Congo, Canada, Rwanda and Burundi, emerging as a seasoned diplomat who continues to play a peacemaking role in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa. Their human touch, which is central to this story, is told with humor and compassion.
