Their story begins with a young American couple, who also left their home in joyful obedience to God, and touched thousands of lives as ambassadors for Jesus.

SHIRLEY ALMAN and her late husband, WEDGE, served as International Directors of Youth With A Mission Hispanic Ministries for decades. Their passion for training and mobilizing Latin American missionaries has taken them to sixty nations on six continents where they have trained thousands of young people who are amazing proof that God continues to work today.

Sandra Devisscher“Door of Hope: A Story of Overcoming Despair”

Door of Hope: A Story of Overcoming Despair

by Sandra Devisscher

As a newlywed, I balanced precariously on a ledge of hopelessness, caught between life and death. Three days after my new husband Roy and I returned from our honeymoon, I was diagnosed with a rare blood disease, for which there was no known cause nor cure. Not only did I battle the illness, but the enemy of my soul deceived me into believing I had turned my back on God. I withdrew from my husband, from others, and from the Lord. I even planned to end my life.

Over the next months, God kept me alive and fought for me. Roy and my friends held on to faith for me. Jesus healed my spirit and taught me how to fight the enemy of my soul. He opened a door of hope that changed everything!

The reasons each of us battle deception, condemnation, or depression may differ, but the truth of who God is, how He views each of us, and His ability to reach us is the same. This is my story of finding His way off that perilous ledge.

“I am grateful to my friend Sandy Devisscher for her radical openness and honesty about her own journey through deep waters. . . This book exposes one of the enemy’s most effective and devastating strategies against fulfillment in life and ministry.”
Dean Sherman, Global elder and Bible teacher, Youth With A Mission

Ron Heinecke –The Indwelling Spirit of Christ: Finding Life in His Presence.”

The Indwelling Spirit of Christ: Finding Life in His Presence
by Ron Heinecke

Ron Heinecke’s new book has been released and is now available on Amazon: The Indwelling Spirit of Christ: Finding Life in His Presence. “Christians often focus on the date we were “born again” and the day we will be with Jesus in Heaven, neglecting life with Jesus now. We pray for Jesus to be manifested at His second coming, but the apostle Paul also prayed the “life of Jesus would be manifested in our mortal bodies” (2 Corinthians 4:10–11). “For of His fullness we have all received” (John 1:16). The message of Jesus we will examine begins in John 14 at the Last Supper, just after Judas left to betray Jesus, concluding at the end of John 17, where Jesus prays we will be perfected by unity with Him. Previously Jesus said we must be perfect. Now He introduces the New Covenant, the way of perfection—living by the life of our very significant Other – our indwelling Lord.” (8/17/17)
