"As a child, Maria Luisa Jimenez Edwards wanted to be a missionary. It held an indescribable allure for her, an intrinsic pull that was aching to spread the Good News of Jesus. In the pages of this book, join her as she embarks on a personal and spiritually-challenging journey to the jungles of Ecuador. It is virtually impossible to describe a missionary life meaningfully to someone who has never experienced it. She wants to encourage readers to find their own paths to follow God as others, in the midst of utmost poverty, have found.
As she wrote these stories she was inspired and challenged anew. Years of participation in the western lifestyle has weakened a passionate faith in a God of power and miracles. From the story of a village of destitute women who dropped everything to come to the aid of a grandmother dying of cancer, to the family who already had seven children but chose to accept an orphan, you will also be inspired by the faith of those who rely on God alone. You will see opportunities to be a part of the miracle if you open your eyes to God’s vision.
The Love and Power of God proves that His Word conquers all, bringing people together to arm themselves with unconditional love, achieving wonders for themselves, their families and communities."
