It started simply. The pastor would stand outside her church and greet the workers as they came in from the fields. She spoke to them in Spanish and they responded. And soon a bridge was forged.

I loved this book! It shows what one person with a compassionate heart and a desire to serve others, can achieve. I am so glad that there are people like Wendy in the world and that through her vision she was able to encourage others to join her and make a difference. I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.

I found the book to be disorganized and a bit boring. I also found it very frustrating and offensive the way the bible was misused.

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.
