This review is from: Found in Translation: An unforgettable mission trip where faith, obedience, and forgiveness intersect (Altered Hearts) (Paperback)
From the very first page, I was caught up into Kim's character: her weaknesses, her humor, her sometimes ditzy thinking, but also her kind heart. As Kim's story unfolds, we see her step into action with surprising gumption, facing problem after unexpected problem with new grit and courage. All with the help of faith and friends.
The Bruners' captivating settings and realistic interactions reminded me, as I read, of my own mission trips and moments in Mexico. The uncertainty, the questions... the falling short and fumbling with a new language on my tongue. And like Kim, we see that God holds us steady even when we falter, when we're afraid to step out--if we'll just trust Him with the outcome.
Kim's final decisions and surprising end to this book make us glad we read--and even more glad we believe.
I hope this is the first of MANY books for Roger and Kristi Bruner!
