I've read this book a couple of times,but every time I re-read it,it always inspires me. Outcry in the Barrio is about Freddy Garcia's journey through life.Garcia came across a lot of obstacles,with drugs,violence,etc.But in the end he conquered all.He fixed his life through Jesus.Freddie and Ninfa Garcia,became one with the ministry,and reached out to people on the streets.
This book made me realize that there is hope,and that's one reason why I loved it.Another reason why I loved it was reading

This book has stuck with me for a very long time. It is the first book that showed me what i dont want to be! It made me cry and made me think about wiser decisions for my future. Thinking back on it now, this book is of things that everyone has been through. True life story that hits the heart and makes it easier to see that there is always a better tomorrow.

Si lo ves superficialmente, es un libro que gira en torno a la superación personal gracias a la fe puesta en la religión. Pero, en el fondo, creo que retrata muy bien las dificultades que tienen que enfrentar los latinos mientras se integran en la comunidad estadounidense.

Sigue siendo superación personal a través de la religión, sí; pero, siendo netamente mexicano, me ofreció un vistazo a lo que viven los paisanos que se van a vivir a los E.U.A.

This is real Christianity. An inspiring story about one man and his journey with His savior, and the continued ripple effect that continues to this day. The book encouraged me to keep on struggling to spread the good news of God and the hope that comes with the sacrifice and love and redemption of Jesus Christ.
A story of redemption and recovery from a former drug addict.

This book was beautiful in so many ways. It displays how much God loves us and fights for us. Totally transformed in mind body and soul is what blessings I received while reading this and I will never forget this book! I am so encouraged and inspired by all that God did in response to the willing and obedient hearts that chose to no longer be slaves to sin but gave their lives to God!!! This is an incredible ministry and I highly recommend this book to anyone addicted to anything.
