Wherever the River Runs: how a forgotten people restored my hope in the gospel- by Kelly Minter
Beauty comes in all forms; sunsets and summer storms; mountains and lowly valleys; and even an old boat named the Discovery, easing down the Amazon.
Kelly Minter has a beautiful way with words and she describes the Amazon in a way I have never read or heard before. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always thought the Amazon was known for it’s massive amount of water, but Kelly reveals what makes the Amazon truly known- it’s people. I don’t know of any book that has truly challenged me just from reading others testimonies. All the hurt, pain, brokenness and even death, never keep these people from loving God even more than they did yesterday. Their joy far out weighs their pain and I couldn’t help but think “I want to live a life like that too.” You will laugh at Kelly’s humor and relate with her raw transparency as she pours her heart out into this book. You won’t want to miss out on reading a beautiful story that will touch your heart and faith.
“I could feel my skin get prickly all over as I envisioned that church choir member gathering Lazaro in his arms, calling his family Lazaro’s family. I think we all long for the bride of Christ, His church, to enfold us this way. So many have been hurt by the church, but in her fullness, in her glory, when she is opening her arms wide the way Christ intends, she is the hope of the world.” -Kelly Minter (from chapter 12, page 170)
My dear friends, this book will change the way you think about your life, challenge your faith and open your eyes to a whole other world along the Amazon.
