Editorial Reviews

Review

This was a heart-rending book! Many tears flowed as I read it. The parts that really touched me were about the suffering the children have to go through. Truly it was the best book I have read this year. I started reading at 10:00pm after the children were in bed and it held me captive until after 2:00am. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down until I was finished. I really can't express in words what this book did to me, other than that it stirred a desire within me to go to a far country, to give ourselves to those people that are suffering and tell them about our Father. It tore my heart apart to think of all these people, hurting, missing limbs, the fatherless, motherless, hungry, burned, and abused while we sit in our cozy little homes, the coffee pot in our reach, watching the birds at the feeders, reading a good book or playing games with our families. It taught me a lesson in thankfulness. --Laura - OH

The writing is gripping and honest, brutally so at times. I cried when they cried and laughed when they laughed. By the end of the story they had changed, and I discovered that I had changed. --Christopher - PA

About the Author

Ruth Ann Stelfox lives in Raymond, Alberta, Canada with her husband, Wayne, and three of their five children. Will and Larry work with Wayne building garden sheds for their new family business. Charlotte and Ruth Ann run an in-home daycare, where they care for several preschoolers. The Stelfoxes live on a small farm on the prairie, forty-five minutes from the magnificent Rocky Mountains and forty miles(as the crow flies) from the Montana border. They raise miniature appaloosa horses and keep a flock of eighty laying hens. They are members of Western Plains Mennonite Church. Ruth Ann has had many articles and poems published and is a field editor for Taste of Home magazine. This is her first book.

I finished this book about a month ago, now I am on a mission to make prayer for foreign nations a regular activity. This book aroused in me a compassion for the hurting people, I mean really hurting people, in Africa.I can't even believe how different their culture and government is from ours. The book was very well written, it was concise without being dull. The author didn't express her emotions in the writing, just what she experienced; which was enough to conjure up emotions in me. I continually read this book for 3 days while everyone else around me was busy working. Now I am reading this book to my children.

What can ordinary people do in a messed up world? They can stand up and be counted. They can volunteer to do what they can where they could. Every little bit counts. This book follows an ordinary family from Canada to Africa to do what they can. They did much. It may not impact the world but their presence and help in this corner of the world in Africa definitely impacted for good many of the lives they touched. Tears will be real and they will be yours as you read this book. You will also sense a feeling of joy as you read of the triumphs experienced by and through this family committed to sharing God's love in a benighted part of the world. Yes, an ordinary person or family under the compelling influence of God in their lives can have a profound impact by following God's leading.
