    One thought on “The Boy Who Met Jesus: Segatashya of Kibeho

    1. Jody Phillips on said:

      Favorite quote:(A LONG ONE->) Jesus knows us all to the very depths of our souls, all our dreams and worries, all hopes and fears, all our goodness and all our weakness, He can see our sins and faults and wants nothing more than for us to heal our hearts and cleanse our souls so that we can love him as immeasurably as he loves us. When he sends us suffering, he does it only to strengthen our spirits so we'll be strong enough to fight off Satan, who wants to destroy us, so that one day we can [...]

      Really amazing supernatural story about the apparitions of Virgin Mary and Jesus in 1982 in Kabeho, in which they are warned of the genocide to occur 12 years later in Rwanda. I'd never heard of these miracles before so really interesting.

    3. Suzanne on said:

      This was a very inspirational story, and it's motivated me to spend more time in prayer. I was a little disappointed that more information about Segatashya's conversations with Christ were not reported in the book, though. I felt Immaculee focused a little too much on her personal feelings about Segatashya and the other visionaries of Kibeho, and she only touched the highlights of Segatashya's life before, during, and after his meetings with Jesus. When I finished the book, I was still thirsting [...]

    4. Myrn on said:

      At first I found this book fascinating, especially since I had never heard of this before. After a while I found some of the conversations disturbing and somewhat questionable. Is this book fact? Not so sure.

    5. Victoria on said:

      I read Immaculee Ilibagiza's book Left To Tell in 3 hours and was so fascinated by her story that I was excited to find out she's written a couple other books. I put this on my to-read list a while back and finally had the chance to read it.This story is about the boy Segatshya who grew up on a poor farm in Rwanda. He heard the voice of Jesus talking to him in 1982 without ever knowing who Jesus was. He was illiterate and practiced paganism in his village though not devoutly. He had no idea abou [...]

      Fascinating true story about a very poor Rwandan boy who Jesus appeared to many times over a period of months and had conversations with him. It does seem hard to believe, but first read "Left to Tell" by Immaculée Ilibagiza (also the author of this book). You will fall in love with her and her honesty, bravery and faith. After reading her personal memoir, it's hard to not believe what she writes. Her writing is honest and raw, and her stories are captivating, all of which holds true with this [...]

      I'm very glad I read this book. I'd never heard of the Kibeho visionaries and am happy to have known this modern miracle. It is good to see God working so overtly in the world today. That said - this had the feel of a newspaper editorial. Not my favorite style and difficult to get into. Once about half the book is done, Ms. Ilibagiza introduces transcripts which I enjoyed much more.

    8. Wendy on said:

      About a boy who for 1 year had public visions of Jesus and private ones off and on after that until his death in the Rwandan genocide. I though it was a very thought provoking book. Not sure if I believe all of it, but regardless, many good points were made and it really made me think about my daily actions and the goals I have for my life.

    9. Kristine on said:

      The story of young Segatashya, a young poor illiterate pagan shepherd boy who Jesus Christ choses to carry his message to the people of Rwanda and beyond is moving, heart-wrenching, and thought provoking. Well worth the time!

    10. Amy Mosbacher on said:

      So inspiring! How obvious the power of God is to take a pagan boy and send him on a mission very much like St. Paul's. The book was well written and captured my attention all the way through. I wish everyone could read it.

    11. Melissa Henderson on said:

      Segatashya's story and ministry is fascinating and inspiring. I never heard of the apparitions in Kibeho, but now my curiosity is piqued. It's a shame that such a gentle, obedient soul was lost so early and violently in the Rwandan genocide.

    12. Chally on said:

      An inspiring and faith affirming book;however, the message is quite redundant if you've already read Our Lady of Kibeho. I recommend starting with Our Lady of Kibeho first. Both are well worth it, especially for Catholics looking for inspiration.

    13. Rita M on said:

      Thought provoking in a religious sense. Much of the information was included in her other books. Wish there could have been more direct information on the thoughts and life of Segatashya. Truly a horrific time for humankind. It is hard to imagine how a Nation can recover from such a genocide.

    14. Anne on said:

      I started this book with a bit of skepticism. I finished it thinking that perhaps the apparitions of Jesus and Mary really happened. A remarkable story that has given me a lot to think about.

    15. Sarah Elizabeth on said:

      Truly wonderful. I had never heard of Segatashya of Kibeho but this story is wonderful, inspiring, and important. Beautifully written, thank you Immaculee for sharing these messages.

    16. Marie on said:

      The book is a good read, only if the author did not speak about herself so long!

    17. Chelsea on said:

      Great book!!!! I am so glad I got to read it! My devotion to Jesus and Mary have grown. I also learned a lot with this story. I recommend all Catholics to read this!

    18. Cristina on said:

      I feel as though I have come to know Jesus Christ a little better by reading this book. If you want to get to know him a little better too, read this book.

    19. Sarah Giammarinaro on said:

      I love how these books are written, they are so beautiful.

    20. Dianne on said:

      Excellent book. Lots of great details. Recommend for believers of every faith. Universal message of love.

      Kniha rwandskej spisovateľky Imaculée Ilibagizy, ktorá prežila masaker v Rwande, je voľným pokračovaním jej predchádzajúcej publikácie Naša pani z Kibeho o troch školáčkach vizionárkach a ich zjaveniach Panny Márie.Tentoraz Imaculée predstavuje ďalšiho vizionára z Rwandy - jednoduchého, nevzdelaného pastiera Segatašju, ktorému sa zjavoval Ježiš, a Segatašjovu misiu šírenia tohto posolstva aj v susedných afrických krajinách.

      Loved this lovely account of a boys encounter with Christ.p. 61a sermon of simple and powerful grace: believe in the Lord, and let everything you do in life be motivated my faith and love Jesus said to me:"I will find the hearts of everyone who believes in me and follows my commandments- no matter which Bible they read or which religion they belong to.When I come looking for my children, I will not only look in the Catholic Church for good Christians who do good deeds and acts of love and devoti [...]

    23. Carlos on said:

      Um livro incrível sobre uma história pouco contada. Em 1983, 11 anos antes do genocídio em Ruanda, Nossa Senhor apareceu a três meninas ruandesas e pediu que espalhassem a sua mensagem: que as pessoas se convertessem a seu filho Jesus Cristo, amassem seus vizinhos, renunciassem à violência, abadonassem todo o mal que praticavam em suas vidas.Essas aparições são reconhecidas como válidas pela Igreja. Além dessas, Nosso Senhor e Nossa Senhora também aparecem a esse menino chamado Segat [...]

    24. Meg on said:

      I found this so inspirational; it was a good reminder that I should always be ready in my heart for the last judgement and that I need to pray more. I loved that Jesus chose such a poor humble boy (Segatashya) to convey his messages of love, repentance and redemption to the world. It was also an eye opener to me of the horrors and violence that people have faced and still face, in other parts of the world which I sometimes choose to be blind to. This book is especially moving to me because my si [...]

      A book that I will never stop thinking about. I plan on reading the authors other books about the Rwandan genocide.

    26. Maxie on said:

      The Boy Who Met Jesus by Immaulaee IlibagizaThe Boy Who Met Jesus is a very well written book almost first hand account of the life of a sweet kindhearted child named Segatashya. It is a book full of joy, faith, redemption and suffering. The boy Jesus selected to appear to was a pagan, illiterate, poor boy whose family did not possessed more than the minimum to sustain life. He had no formal schooling and when it was offered he opted to do things that would help his family live.This book restore [...]

      Excellent story! I read it to my kids and they were glued to it.

    28. Louise on said:

      Story Description:It's the greatest story never told: that of a boy who met Jesus and dared to ask Him all the questions that have consumed mankind since the dawn of time. His name was Segatashya. He was a shepherd born into a penniless and illiterate pagan family in the most remote region of Rwanda. He never attended school, never saw a bible, and never set foot in a church. Then one summer day in 1982 while the 15-year-old was resting beneath a shade tree, Jesus Christ paid him a visit. Jesus [...]

    29. Erin on said:

      The Boy Who Met Jesus is an amazing true story of a boy who has apparitions from Jesus. It is told from the point of view of a young woman who grew up not far away from where the apparitions were happening, during the 1980s in Rwanda. There are so many great things about this book. It passes on a lot of the messages that the boy, Segatashya, heard and transcripts of his conversations with doctors and priests who interviewed him during this time. I believe that this book is very well researched a [...]

    30. Sherilyn on said:

      This was another new adventure for me. I don't believe I have ever read a book about visionaries - particularly occurring not that many years ago (1980s). Did we realize this occurred? Are there people today who have this experience? I found it interesting to geographically locate the area in Rwanda and see history from another side (in regards to the genocide). P109 When you have a child, you do so out of love. You do not know if that child will be good or bad, but you love that child with all [...]
