Tears Water the Seeds of Hope is the inspiring true story of a Midwest husband and wife that become disenchanted with the relentless pursuit of the American Dream and embark on a journey that spans six countries and redefines their values and lives. The story begins in a small town in Wisconsin and weaves its way through South and Central America as the couple gathers an army of supporters and establishes an organization to save the lives of children in the end stages of starvation in eastern Guatemala. The narrative is filled with action-packed adventure and heartwarming victories as the characters face incredible odds and seemingly hopeless situations, while hundreds of volunteers join mission teams to offer help and hope through the programs of the ministry. Readers of all ages will enjoy the roller-coaster ride of emotions-from laughter to tears to sheer joy-as they realize that ordinary people can make a difference one life at a time.
Tears Water the Seeds of Hope is an inspirational read that will leave you amazed and warm your heart. A true story, Kim Tews tells what happened when she and her husband Randy decided to leave the American Dream behind and embark on a journey of the heart. Doing God's work, they visit many countries, working tirelessly to feed starving and malnourished kids.
Some of their struggles and frustrations brought tears to my eyes. Not only did they struggle with their faith, but they struggled with financial hardship. Just how do you save so many? It brought to mind the story of Jesus turning water into wine - somehow, they managed. To selflessly give of yourself so much is something that is inspiring. A fabulous memoir!
