Happy Wednesday! It’s almost Good Friday which means it’s almost EASTER!! Hallelujah! To paraphrase a popular sermon, “It’s Wednesday but Sunday is coming!” So thankful that we have a Savior who purchased with His blood “persons from every tribe, language, people, and nation”! (Rev 5:9)
Ahem. Sorry about that little mini-sermon there – a freebie for all y’all. 😉
Today, I’m continuing to spotlight the Extreme Devotion series from Kathi Macias with a look at More Than Conquerors.
About the Book
True love ignites their passionate pursuit of His call
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.
