An authentic story about following the call of Christ, Jennifer Slattery’s Healing Love takes a rare look at how missions work impacts not only those who serve, but the ones being served.
Life’s circumstances often dictate what we carry in our relational baggage; Slattery’s main characters American Brooke Endress and Salvadoran Ubaldo Chavez are no exceptions. From two completely different worlds, neither could anticipate what happens when their paths cross in his home country.
Healing Love offers readers a unique view of two parallel stories that eventually intersect in a completely “but God” manner. As someone who has traveled the globe for foreign missions, I particularly enjoyed the portions of the story offered from the local perspective of the people in El Salvador i.e., what often happens in missions teams “blow in, blow up and blow out”!
A page turning, can’t wait to see what happens next, realistic look at the daily struggles faced by true Christ-followers, and the beauty with which God’s plan unfolds for those with patience to see the plan through, Healing Love does not disappoint!
