“"The House of Hope," what a wonderful name. It brings to mind a place where help is available and lives can be changed. That is exactly the ministry Robin and Joyce Hill were called to open. God gave them a love for the orphaned, medically challenged children in China. Through prayer and trust, the Hills watched God supply not just the children who needed them, but the building, caregivers, money, supplies, and countless surgeries. The home opened in 2000, and the work has helped more than 1,000 children. Not only were the children given much needed surgery for medical conditions like spina bifida, cleft palate, and "extrophy," but they were given love and the chance at what the Hills call, a "Forever Family." This book is the story of their journey, trials, victories, and faith. This book is the story of the children, some who wouldn't live, but all who were loved and given hope.
I was totally pulled into the Hill's story and began praying for the children and ministry they discuss. The stories are powerful and show God's love and care for the smallest among us. Parts of the story made me smile and some brought tears to my eyes, but sll brought the burden to pray for this ministry. I recommend this book to everyone, and encourage you to visit the website below. I was given my review copy by the Litfuse Publicity Group, and thank them for the opportunity.”
