And what a fitting place to begin...in the basement of White Branch Church of the Brethren, the small country church where Dave and I both grew up.
The book recounts the life (so far!) of Dave and Jen Bell (on left), how God called them out of their comfortable, successful American-dream life into full-time missionary work rescuing abandoned babies in Kenya.
My cousin Kent was Dave's best friend in high school and Kent's wife Sandy was Jenny's best friend...in fact, God used Kent and Sandy to orchestrate Dave and Jen's first date. And the rest, as they say, is history.
It was a wonderful day, not only selling and signing books, but much more than that as I got to visit with so many of my family members and friends from the past.
There really is no place like home.
Then yesterday evening we did another book event at Tabor Church near Muncie, Dave and Jen's home/sending church. An exhausting but exhilarating day!

Praise God! The day we worked for so long finally arrived.
