Why Read This Book? Unless we hide our faith as Christians, we will occasionally be somebody's target. Do we settle for: "You have your beliefs and I have mine, let's leave it at that"? Or do we take to heart the admonition of 1 Peter 3:15: "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."? Taking the latter course will undoubtedly launch us into a series of joys and fears. It will test our faith, affect friendships and maybe even put our family at risk. This story is an attempt to portray the battles of an ordinary small town man who tries to balance commitment to work, family, community and his Christian faith with some joyful fruit and some heart wrenching results. Henry Wiebe was born in Hearst, Ontario but moved with his parents to Abbotsford, B.C. at age 9. After graduating from a Christian Mennonite high school he entered the elementary school teaching profession for 24 years, 15 as a principal. He was then invited to join the staff of Sevenoaks Alliance Church in Abbotsford as Pastor for Christian Education. After 10 years on staff there Henry served in Kijabe, Kenya as a volunteer teacher at Moffat Bible College for one year while his wife, Helen, assisted in station administration. Upon returning to Canada he became the Senior Pastor of Oliver Alliance Church for nearly 7 years and has since retirement served as voluntary Pastor for Seniors in the same church.
