Product Description

Tich and Joan Smith found themselves at rock bottom when grace showed up, brought them together, and inspired them to break out of their comfort zones in the realm of God's kingdom. As a result, these two unlikely middle-class South Africans moved past the racial prejudices of the apartheid era and followed God's call to love the poorest of the poor.

The result was Lungisisa Indlela Village (LIV), the legendary residential facility that rescues orphaned and vulnerable children, restores their lives, and raises them up to be young leaders in South Africa. Through LIV, the Smiths have witnessed the transforming power of loving others as Christ loves the church--this is the story of thousands of changed lives.

Publisher's Description

Tich was a South African sports star who lost it all to alcohol. Joan had recently lost her husband. Their lives were at rock bottom when grace showed up and inspired these two middle class South Africans to move past the racial prejudices of the Apartheid era and launch a ministry together.

The result was Lungisisa Indlela village (LIV), the legendary residential facility that rescues children, restores lives, and raises young leaders in South Africa. This is the story of transformed lives—both theirs and the orphans—as a country begins to embrace grace and love others as Christ loves the church.

Author Bio

Tich Smith grew up in a middle class home in Johannesburg, playing rugby for Natal and cricket for Natal and South Africa. His sports career derailed at age 35 due to alcoholism. Joan had recently lost her husband when from the ashes of their lives, God brought them together. He then gave them the passion to create the Lungisisa Indlela village (LIV), the legendary residential facility for orphaned and vulnerable children in their native South Africa.
