"The stories in the chapters that follow aren't chronological. They're not a history of how I found myself living on the side of a mountain in Mexico, and I'm not sure that would interest anyone but my mother and her friends anyway. Instead, I've mined my journals for those moments when God used the very people I thought I was in Mexico to lead, to lead me instead. Time and again I've been led to trust God, with my little mustard seed of faith, to see how he not only shows up in our circumstance - but he shows off! It's not because he needs to prove himself; rather, he is demonstrating to a forgotten population - the orphans that I serve - that he will be their Father and Protector and Provider."
Beth and Todd established a ministry that helps orphans - the poorest, most defenseless members of a needy populace. And while the stories here are drawn from those experiences, this book isn't a memoir. It's about living with faith, with the certainty that God will show up, exactly where and exactly when He's needed. Beth calls it a reckless faith - a willingness to trust even when you don't understand. And her book - an inspiring collection of true stories about real people who, when faced with real challenges, chose to trust God - is a call to live with reckless faith.

Although I did enjoy the audio version very much, I am a visual person by nature. So I would prefer print, but that is because I get easily distracted, not because the book wasn't very well done audibly.
No, I have not.
I was very touched and both laughed and teared up.
I read this a week before I left on a mission trip to Mazatlan, Mexico to serve with Back2Back Ministries, the very ministry the Guckenbergers started. It really helped me prepare for the trip and I loved knowing the history behind all of the efforts.
