Overview

This book is a true account of how ordinary people can do extraordinary things. Even in the midst of the most overwhelming and discouraging situations, those who are able to trust God, as these ordinary people did, can find their circumstances change and their hope restored. Humor, inspiration, and practical information are offered in THE HOME THAT GOD BUILT. As you work your way through this story of Al Sanchez, founder of the Prince of Peace Home for Girls, you will be intrigued by the adventures his journey entailed. Al’s heart of compassion for orphaned, abandoned, and abused girls living in deplorable conditions in Guatemala will touch your own. The girls, the staff, the volunteers, the visitors, and Al himself continued to be astounded as they watched God intervene in their circumstances and challenges. Time after time their despair was turned into hope, as the easy-to-read vignettes about many of those involved will relate. Those simply looking for a positive real-life story can identify and be encouraged. Those looking for a down-to-earth description of what life on the mission field in a third-world country actually involves will find specifics to help them. More than that, they will be helped to discover how to actually walk through it all victoriously and joyfully. The book is filled with many pages of photographs, which make the written word come even more alive than the captivating text alone provides. Did Al Sanchez give up when his wife was tragically killed in an auto accident as they neared the town where their ministry to wounded and hurting girls was to begin? No, he didn't! Did God send him help? He certainly did! Were the lives of the girls touched in miraculous ways! They surely were! Was life in a third-world country easy? No, it definitely was not; it was a challenge. What can you gain by reading THE HOME THAT GOD BUILT? You can - be encouraged in discouraging places, - find hope in hopeless circumstances, - discover faith in the most amazing situations, - be challenged to live a life full of meaning, - laugh, cry, and be inspired, - and help others to do the same. You will find yourself thinking of family; friends; churches; mission programs; Bible Study groups; missionaries, prospective missionaries, college faith groups, pastors; book review and discussion groups; children; and ordinary people who would enjoy benefiting from this touching story. A Kindle version is also available for those desiring it, especially those in other countries.

Meet the Author

CINDY MILLER was "shot out of a cannon" by God to help Al Sanchez carry on his calling to minister to hurting girls in Guatemala when it seemed that his vision had ended in disaster. Cindy agreed to go for three months, but stayed for 17 years! She was not trained for her job in a school for missions, but rather in the School of Hard Knocks. She describes her experiences with the Home as the most challenging and most meaningful of her life. Cindy lives at Christian Retreat in Bradenton, Florida, and has two children and two grandchildren.
