I wanted to let you know about a new book that will be released in January 2011. Passport Through Darkness is written by Kimberly Smith, president and co-founder of Make Way Partners, a Christian mission agency committed to going to the most vulnerable & least protected to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery, through the hope of the Gospel.
Here’s a synopsis of the book from Barnes & Noble . . .
As she shares her extraordinary stories of fighting human trafficking as an ordinary mom, Kimberly Smith offers hope for readers who wonder if God is calling them to greater things. Passport Through Darkness takes readers on Smith’s journey to the deserts of Africa and the deserts of her own soul as she tries to live well as an imperfect American mom, crusade for justice for orphans around the world, and embrace God’s extraordinary dreams for her. When Kimberly and her husband risk everything to answer God’s call, they see God change and restore them—even amid exhaustion, marital struggles, and physical limitations. This heartbreaking, heart lifting book is for anyone who longs to see God’s redemptive power heal broken hearts, fill empty bellies, and shelter uncovered heads. It is a call to readers to take one more step on their journey to know God’s heart. It is a guide from one ordinary person to another to finding a life that matters.
From Kimberly Smith’s website . . .
Kimberly Smith was an average American churchgoer, wife, and mother—until she dared to ask God His dreams for her life. Traveling around the world and deep into the darkness of her own heart, Kimberly’s worst fears collided with her faith as she and her family discovered the atrocities of human trafficking. But it was in that broken place that a self-centered life was transformed into an international effort to save thousands from modern-day slavery, persecution, disease, and genocide.
Passport Through Darkness sounds like an inspiring book and a heart stirring journey. You can read the first two chapters here and pre-order the book through Make Way Partners, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and CBD.
