Be inspired by dramatic, true stories featuring an African doctor who rose from extreme poverty to start an AIDS hospital where he and his staff prescribe hope to thousands of people.
If you think Africans are just poor and dying for our pity, think again. Many of them have something of great value that we desperately need- a deep-rooted faith that weathers even the darkest storms. Journey to Jos, Nigeria with Erika Wiebe Nossokoff to meet Dr. Christian Isichei who opened the Faith Alive Hospital in 1996 with $333, an unwavering confidence in Jesus Christ and a vision to serve the poor in an area prone to AIDS, abductions, poisonings, forced marriages, fiery car accidents and bloody Christian-Muslim crises.
These captivating stories highlight dramatic events for the humble doctor and some of his staff who turned unthinkable adversity into opportunities to serve others. While the central links connecting each story are Dr. Christian and the hospital, the main character is our incarnational God who is, as Africans say, 'on ground' with all of us.
Whether you read this alone or with a small group, the power of these stories will ignite your faith to come alive in new and exciting ways.
