The Color of Grace by Bethany Haley Williams is a great book.
Be warned: It’s intense and some of the stories are tough.
Bethany is the founder of Exile International.
She works with former child soldiers to overcome their grief and trauma using art therapy.
These kids, despite their pasts, are full of hope, a hope that what’s in front of them is better than anything in their pasts.
These kids love God and thank Him everyday–even though many are orphans living in an impoverished area.
I walked away from the book totally wrecked…
The redemptive power of Jesus Christ is much more powerful than what we see and hear about in the West.
There is no difference between the Jesus of the developing world and the Jesus of the West.
Only a difference in the mindsets of the people.
I encourage you to check out The Color of Grace.
Just be prepared for your perspective to shift.
