Love this book. It shows the miraculous provision of GOD. Yes, I do believe miracles still happen today. One quote that is really speaking to me, "But more deeply, in order for you to be useful to the Master here-or anywhere-you must be close to Him and in love with Him. To the degree that you are intimate with Him, you will know what to do, what you must do." I know this to be true and am striving for a more intimate relationship daily. Also, they stress that there is no formula or mission stra...
Always Enough tells the story of Rolland and Heidi Baker's ministry to the nation of Mozambique. From small beginnings with a run-down orphanage, they have started a movement that planted 5,000 churches in ~6 years. Their amazing work is a testimony to the grace and mercy of God and continues to this day. So, what's the book like?Roughly alternating between Rolland and Heidi, the book begins with descriptions of their early lives and briefly details their work in Hong Kong and London; the main f...
This is one of the most life-changing, life impacting books I've ever read. Heidi and Rolland are radical lovers of God who have lived in garbage dumps and shacks all across Mozambique, taking in thousands and thousands of orphans with no way of taking care of them. They depend on Jesus every day to be all that they need...and He shows up and multiplies food daily, raises the dead, opens blind eyes and ears...etc. You can't come away without your heart being broken for the orphans and the widows...
Love this book written by Rolland Heidi Baker. They give great perspective on what it looks like to live fully surrendered to God, and what it looks like to live a life of desiring more of Him, and less of our human, selfish ambition. I am deeply touched and challenged by this book, and was super blessed by the short last chapter. They talk about the reality of the challenge the face with the life they have chosen, but also about the great glory and joy of surrendering your life to Him.
An interesting, and inspiring, testimony of the Bakers' years serving the Lord in Mozambique. However, as much as I would love to see such revival and works of the Lord happen in America, unfortunately we are not nearly as needy as those in Mozambique. I am not sure American believers WANT to be in such dire straits so as to see such miracles as the Baker's describe in this book.
It turns out, I'd read this book before I got it. The fine print inside reveals "Originally published under the title 'There is Always Enough'." So, don't buy both. Either is fine.
One of my favorite books about God's power and His desire to lift the lowly out of the ash heaps. It's an inspiring book that I've read several times and plan on reading again.
What a wonderful account, 5 stars all the way! I had two concerns initially: were the Bakers false prophets and would I get a detailed account of a missionary journey? After reading this book in it's entirety I am convinced the Bakers are legitimate (there's too much super detailed information), and my curiosity was satisfied about the real experiences of a missionary closer to the present time. I've seen some footage of them via youtube, and that's possibly somewhat spiritually amiss. However,
Wow ... this books is so so good.Rolland & Heidi Baker outline the early days of their relationship, their awakening to Christ's incredible love for them and the start of their ministry work in Mozambique. Heidi asked for a nation to minister to and the Lord gave them Mozambique. Their story demonstrates that old chestnut that the Lord simply desires those who are available. Those who make themselves available will be used and through daily surrender will be used extraordinarily.We get to see th...
I really enjoyed reading about what God has done/is doing through the Baker's ministry; a lot of the testimonials were excellent.I was not so much a fan of some of the written style: Often it seemed they were trying to get across the major difficulties faced by the nation on a large scale, but generally in a way completely lacking in style. Undoubtedly, the attempt was to show these trails on the large, national, scale - yet I often felt like I was merely reading lists of statistics rather than
I don't know how to understand this book. If everything is as clear-cut as the authors say it is, then much of what has happened in their ministry is absolutely amazing. However, the experience of 99.999% of the people I know who honestly love God and love others would argue that things don't always go the way that the Bakers say they do. Why not? That's something I really want to understand, but not something that was answered at all by this book.A second, seperate issue I had was the constant
A friend stopped by to give me this book over the weekend. I read the first chapter the first night and it so captivated my attention that it leap-frogged my to-read pile and I finished it in two days. The stories of God's miraculous provision, healings, and restoration of children inspired and challenged me. Think Acts meets Mozambique. I give it four stars only because the later chapters dragged a little for me. Not because they weren't amazing stories, but I think I hit what Donald Maass call...
I read this book while on a mission trip to Tanzania and it REALLY heavily inspired my service there and my outlook on life. I am currently re-reading the book, which is very rare for me, so that says a lot. I really love her love story that is sort of dug into in this book, and I just really admire this woman's story.I would suggest this book to those that want to be stretched and want a greater understanding of God's work in other parts of the world. Those with a heart for service and missions...
This book was a faith inspiring read. Challenged me to trust God more with my life and my calling. I was so inspired this year when I felt God tell me to go hear her speak. I missed her the first time, but the second time I was there, with a great seat. The presence of God forever changed me. I said, "YES!" to a call for full time ministry to the poor, the broken, the needy wherever the Lord will send me. Praying now for financing and direction as I press in to the call of Jesus on my life to te...
A very powerful and deep book. I really enjoyed this, the authors heidi and rolland baker tell about their lives as missionaries in mozambique. They take in hundreds of orphaned children, make it through life threatening floods, and see that God still heals the sick, and raises the dead.An amazing read for any christian, i would recommend it for someone anticipating becoming a missionary. The authors show what it is to give your life fully to the lord to do what ever he wants with it.
Incredible true story of Rolland & Heidi Baker's experiences as missionaries in Mozambique. The first part of the book is background - how they met and launched into ministry first in Asia, then England, and finally Mozambique. Read this last year before the trip and recently re-read in anticipation of the trip this year. Even though I've not actually seen the places in this book, having been in Moz. enables me to relate to situations and experiences.
Really. I think God is miraculous and his provision is always enough. This story is encouraging because it talks about the modern day miracles God is doing for his people around the globe. I returned the book to my friend or I would love to copy a few of my favorite quotes. This is also a reminder of the diversity of worship within the body of Christ.
This is the story of Rolland and Heidi Baker, focusing on their experiences in Mozambique as missionaries. In Africa they experienced not only disaster and poverty on a national level, but national repentance and revival as Africa responded to God. Through the Bakers' delegation of responsibility and leadership, at least five thousand churches were started in Africa in less than a decade.
As recommended by a friend, I was encouraged by this wonderful story of modern evangelist missionaries in southeastern Africa. It took a while for me to realize - and confirm by looking at the book genre on the back - that they were charismatic in their approach, but they certainly were and had a zeal we don't often experience in the U.S. for sharing God's Good News.
This book is a beautiful testimony of the living God. He is not a boxed up or even American God. He has not changed from the days of old and it is awesome to hear of the Lord's miracles and healing.
5 stars for content and challenge, not necessarily writing style but I don't think the authors were concerned about winning any writing awards. I've been challenged and have a new addition to my list of "dangerous" books; books that will leave forever changed.
I have no questions about the Baker's motivations or earnestness. They are a brother and sister of mine in Christ. But this book is filled with bad theology. It's written by confused people, and I'm concerned that they are only confusing others. It's also really badly written.
This book is legitimately CRAZY. If you believe in God, read this book and see - through stories from halfway around the world - what amazing things He is willing to do when people are completely dependent on Him.
If you want to hear about the amazing love of God in practical ways, this book is brilliant. I love hearing the background of Heidi and Rollands lives and the miracles God has done through them! Brilliant read!
This honestly was an easy read. Heidi and Rolland tell she amazing and truthfully unbelievable stories. If you're looking to be encouraged and really find out what God is capable of from a modern story this is a great place to go. Otherwise pick up your Bible.
This book is empowering to any missionaries... the Lord is so big!
Read at my friends request. This book is great. And the Bakers represent Gods heart for the western world in the 21st century.
This book is about the incredible story of a couple's ministry to the poorest of the poor, "least of these" in Mozambique. This book will grab your heart right from the get go. It's very touching.
I loved how these missionaries had every need met while working in Africa.
This woman is truly my heroe
