When Doug and Cathy Kelley left the security of their Montana businesses and arrived in Burbank in 1998, little did they know they'd end up living in a tiny apartment on one of the most dangerous streets in LA. They had no idea they'd be planting a church called Open Arms Christian Center among the poorest of the poor. But God knew.
Open Arms - House of Miracles is no ordinary book. It's the Kelley's hard-hitting and poignant story about people whose broken lives have been miraculously transformed by a loving God.
In this book you'll find:
• Murderers who received forgiveness
• Addicts who found freedom
• Transgenders who experienced acceptance
• Losers who became leaders
The stories in Open Arms range from Pitbulls to bullet holes. You'll see how Jesus can turn a person's mess into their own message. Do miracles happen today? You'll find them here.
