Lay down your guns
How does Dr. Amanda Madrid's faith help her overcome violence and fear after dangerous drug cartels attack the jungle clinics she has established? How will she achieve her desire to bring hope and healing to the wounded and suffering people in the mountains of Central Honduras?
In Honduras' ""Wild West"" mountain jungles, Amanda Madrid found her calling as a medical doctor to poor farmers.
When she was a young girl, Amanda prayed a prayer asking God to help her serve the rest of her life as a doctor. When her father rejected her dream and calling, eighteen- year-old Amanda struck out alone to enter medical school in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
Her work as a medical officer, international consultant, and director of a multi- national Christian medical group called Predisan could have resulted in prestigious luxury for her. Instead, she became a medical missionary in her own country; her faithfulness to her prayer as a little girl led Dr. Madrid to the mountains on horseback and prepared her for the biggest challenge of her life.
When a drug cartel captures a Predisan clinic in the jungle, Dr. Madrid goes toe to toe with the cartel's paid mercenaries--she in her signature red high heels and wielding prayer, the soldiers in their combat boots and brandishing AK-47s.
This is the compelling story of a Honduran doctor heartbroken about the many killings and bad medicine of the drug cartels. Can the same kind of love and prayer she gives her patients also cause these violent men to lay down their guns?
Two cultures collide and embrace in this love story and coming-of-age struggle for life's "high places."
After Tenwa burns his tribe's religious shrine, he realizes that following the missionary may cost him his life. His father and the tribal leaders want him dead. He flees his village, hoping to reach the Nile River and safety of high places where he can start again with his new wife, Tabu.
As the Germans and British battle for land in East Africa, Missionaries William and Jessica Bell struggle to evangelize the "heathen" and survive wars of their own in early twentieth-century Uganda. As the Bells help Tenwa survive, they learn about redemption from the ones they came to redeem.
