These are heartrending stories about people in a faraway land being liberated from the seemingly impossible. Each one takes us on a deeply moving Journey through life changing insights that are unforgettable. These compelling accounts transcend culture and capture the universal cries of the heart that affect all of us, no matter who we are, where we came from, or what we’ve been through. People often weep while they read these powerful stories and many have a profoundly personal encounter with God.
All this happens because no matter where we may go, even to a faraway tribe on a remote mountain in East Africa, there are universal longings in the human soul that are common to “every tribe and people and nation” (Revelation 5:10). And when we are confronted with those longings in graphic, apprehending ways, such as happens in these gripping accounts, we can become so affected by their timeless truths that those insights can become a treasured part of our own Journey.
