Lesley's heart was broken at 22 by the hopelessness in the faces of little children struggling to survive extreme poverty in the Philippines. She had volunteered from England as a nurse for six months. Now, with her husband Peter (a Filipino pastor) she has devoted her life to serving the poor, venturing into dire situations to rescue child prostitutes, criminals, addicts and the homeless. This book tells their stories, and through them the story of God's amazing ways as Lesley established Life And More Abundant Ministries, a charity for the relief of poverty, and LAMA House, a residential home for abandoned, neglected or abused boys. The book is filled with graphic accounts: A violent gangster made tender; a suicidal addict snatched from the brink; a teenage daughter sold into prostitution; tragedy on a colossal scale in the great earthquake that hit Luzon. There are many horror stories, but again and again they are turned around for good.
