She is a mother of two daughters and leads the Eastwind Church with her husband Leon Kayogera in Richmond, Virginia.  Chantal is a survivor of genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda that took place in 1994.  Some of her siblings, uncles, and cousins mostly on her father's side were killed during the genocide, and it was a miracle that she survived though she experienced, dehumanization, beatings and torture.
