Back cover: Tears Water the Seeds of Hope is the
inspiring true story of a Midwest husband and wife that become disenchanted
with the relentless pursuit of the American Dream and embark on a journey that
spans six countries and redefines their values and lives.
My Review: I was
hooked from the first pages. Which of us has not become disillusioned with the
American Dream and wished that we could make a change that would help mold and
benefit another life? Don’t we all wonder just what life means and where we fit
The author and her husband had those same questions and
emotions but they took it to the next level by following it up with actions
that have made a world of difference to people across the continent.
Taking up the cause of starvation and particularly those in
eastern Guatemala who suffer from end stages of starvation, this couple have
built a mission of not only giving but of training, educating, and loving those
in hopeless situations. They travel frequently to Guatemala to facilitate the
programs of Outreach for World Hope (www.outreachforworldhope.org )
an organization they helped to found.
The stories of those who have returned to health and those
whose little bodies suffered, stories of loving, forgiving, adoption, and
victory over impossible odds will keep the reader emotionally connected to the
page as the author pours out the heartfelt truths about their beginning mission
work. The reader cannot help but to be changed by the stories and prompted to
take an action, any action to help another.
Readers will be wrapped up in the emotional side of this
journey and be brought to laughter and tears as each reader will learn that
ordinary people can do extraordinary things helping one life at a time. This is
a must read.
