KEPT FOR A PURPOSE
A True Story of Peril, Forgiveness, and Unexpected Favor
As a teenager in April 1994, JEAN BOSCO must flee his beautiful home in Kigali to escape the Rwandan genocide. Young Bosco journeys through the forests to neighboring Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo), where, with the support of brave friends and local missionaries who lead him to faith in Jesus Christ, he slowly adjusts to a new country. But with little warning, civil war erupts in Zaire two years later, and he is forced once again to run for his life. With only the clothes on his back, he makes it to a smoke-filled refugee camp in Uganda. How Bosco escapes this camp and survives a second refugee camp and imprisonment in Kenya is a triumphant story of the miracles that can unfold when people extend grace, kindness, and selfless courage—and pray.

My Life in Pursuit of A Dream
DR. ELLAMAE SIMMONS refused to believe the story America tried to tell her about herself. For one hundred years, she boldly shouldered open doors for the generations that came after her. From the arrival of her ancestors aboard a slaving vessel in 1775, to Klan rallies outside her childhood Ohio home; from Jim Crow laws and blocked opportunity to the electrifying election of the nation’s first African American president, this sweeping memoir also captures the larger history of Black people in America. As the first Black woman allergist and immunologist in the country, throughout her life Ellamae refused to let bitter disappointment or personal heartbreak turn her aside. Never content to just witness history, this fearless hidden figure went out and made her own.
