Product Description

By age 10, Sammy had lost his family to AIDS---so when he entered the safe haven of Tumaini Children's Home in Kenya, he saw it as a miracle. When world-traveler and Twitter innovator Claire Diaz-Ortiz entered the same building, she merely saw it as a place to spend the night. But God had other plans! A story of transformational friendship. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

Sammy Ikua Gachagua had lost his father to illness, his mother to abandonment, and his home to poverty. By age ten, he was living in a shack with seven other children and very little food. He entered an orphanage seeing it as a miracle with three meals a day, a bed to sleep in, and clothes on his back.

When Claire Diaz-Ortiz arrived in Kenya at the end of an around-the-world journey, she decided to stay the night, climb Mt. Kenya, then head back home. She entered an orphanage seeing it as little more than a free place to spend the night before her mountain trek.
God had other plans.

Hope Runs
is the emotional story of an American tourist, a Kenyan orphan, and the day that would change the course of both of their lives forever. It's about what it means to live in the now when the world is falling down around you. It's about what it means to hope for the things you cannot see. Most of all, it's about how God can change your life in the blink of an eye.
