Personal highlights

  1. New church after the Genocide inside the old church
  2. Old church now used as a Genocide Memorial Museum
  3. Interior design reminds more of an industrial warehouse
  4. So much space to worship for a rather small rural town
  5. Small group chanting and cheering behind the church
