Kin's negative overreaction to the change angers the project leaders and her teammates and immediately makes her the least popular team member. She's determined to do better, though. And to be obedient to God.
When Kim breaks her arm, she feels useless. She wants to do evangelism, but the team didn't bring a translator and the villagers don't speak any English. Kim knows nada Spanish, and her "dual-language Bible" turns out to be Spanish-only.
Kim undertakes two one-handed projects. The first is her own idea. The second is God's, though, and it sounds crazy. Crazier than crazy. But will it touch the villagers' hearts with the Gospel? How can she even find out?
Wow what an amazing story. I absolutely enjoyed reading this one.
It is the type of book that reminds you of what is truly important and that is God. Reminder number two is no matter how bad you think you have it... there are other people who are worse off than you.
I would highly recommend this book. I can see myself reading it again.
Happy Reading Everyone!
Kim is ready for her mission trip. Except for being late to her plane, that is. Then it turns out she missed a few important emails about the trip. Changes were made, and they are now headed to the middle of nowhere to help a small community after a windstorm. What?! With most of her stuff now useless and herself confused, Kim sets out on a trip only God could make anything out of. A trip where God uses her to an immeasurable extent, even if in unusual ways.
"Found in Translation" is a great book where Kim learns to trust God in all circumstances and with all plans. No matter how unlikely the plan, God can work miraculous things out of it. She learns about forgiveness and giving others second chances. Although somewhat predictable, this is was still a story that makes one rethink how we use our lives.
This is the first in the Altered Hearts series. The second and third are "A Season of Pebbles" and "Overshadowed." For more on Roger Bruner, visit his website and Facebook page.
For instance, because of her habit of not reading her email, she is unaware the mission trip has changed. They will now be going to a remote location that has been flattened by a tornado, has no running water, and sleep will be outdoors on the ground. Kim is not prepared to rough it.
Additionally, her lack of attention causes her to miss her airplane flight, which results in several hours of delay for everyone else on the mission trip. To say she gets off to a rocky start with the group is putting it mildly. In fact, only one person, Aleesha, doesn’t seem upset with her.
The whole idea of this trip, Kim thought, was to change people’s lives. Instead, this experience is life-changing for her. It is also one of the most difficult things she has lived through. She experiences frustration, physical injury and intense hostility--especially from one team member. But deep friendship and angelic encounters also await her.
I liked this book very much. As the story goes along, the reader is pulled in more and more, and this volume becomes a real page turner. The relationships Kim develops with Aleesha, along with some of the villagers, are heartwarming. As a new convert to Christ, Kim has a problem giving up old habits, including the use of profanity, although the actual words are not given in this volume. Her struggles show her to be like the rest of us who must work hard to get rid of habits.
Found in Translation is part of the Altered Hearts Series, but the story definitely stands on its own. This 5-star book is in the young adult category, but will appeal to all readers. I recommend it to all readers who like well-written, or true-to-life fiction.
