Book Blurb:

With violent crime on the rise and the political climate changing throughout certain parts of Mexico, the opportunity for open Christian witness, particularly in some areas of Chiapas State, is rapidly decreasing. Hector Rodriguez pastors a small church in the tourist-popular border town of Tijuana. He also routinely carries Bibles deeper into the hostile areas of Mexico, where he ministers despite increasing difficulty and persecution.

Hector’s mother accompanied him on one of those trips and felt God called her to stay in the little village of San Juan Chamula, where she uses the Scriptures to teach reading to the families who are open to it. In retaliation for Hector’s bringing the Bibles into areas hostile to Christians and in an effort to dissuade him from continuing to expand his ministry there, Hector’s mother is murdered. Hector must decide if he will continue his work despite his worries about protecting his wife and children.

My Review:

Virginia lives away from her family in the village of San Juan Chamula, which is located in the middle of Mayan difficulties and hostile situations. Her son Hector wishes Virginia would move back home closer to her family, but she is confident that the village is where God wants her, even though it is difficult and dangerous to witness to anyone.

As the family continues to worry about Virginia, she continues to witness to anyone who will listen to her until one day she disappears. This frightens Hector and the family even more, and causes him to worry about the safety of his own family. Even having help with his ministry from family friend Marty from California, safety is still an issue.

Author Kathi  Macais writes another masterpiece with this story set in Mexico. With a cast of characters that are unique and so wonderfully blend together with one another, this story takes you to a location where it is dangerous to talk about God and the Bible freely. You will be able to feel the fear and hurt with these families as well as feel the love, joy and peace of knowing that God will carry them through whatever difficulties they face. You will get to know the lifestyles, food and the area where these families live. But more importantly, you will see their passion for the God they so love.

Sometimes when a book has several different stories going on, it is difficult to read and understand, but not with Kathi’s books. Her writing is so awesome and professional you will have no problems with confusion or understanding where the plot is going. She blends the stories together so well it is just like living in the story right along with the characters.

I like the heavy scriptural content of the book, and I especially like Virginia’s verse throughout the book, Romans 8:37, “Now, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”  After reading this book, you will have a different attitude about missionaries and what they face when on the mission field. This book is a Must Read! I would highly encourage you to buy a copy of book, read it and pass it along! It will change your life, just as it did mine.

I received this book from the author to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
