Land of the Free . . . Home of the Brave. Kabul, 2001—American forces have freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. Kites have returned to the skies. Women have removed their burqas. There is dancing in the streets.
A decade later, Afghanistan is a far cry from those first images of a country freed from Taliban rule.
When Special Forces veteran Steve Wilson returns to Kabul as security chief to the Minister of Interior, he is disillusioned with the corruption and violence that has overtaken the country he fought to free. Relief worker Amy Mallory arrives in Afghanistan ready to change the world. She soon discovers that as a Western woman, the challenges are monumental. Afghan native Jamil returns to his homeland seeking work, but a painful past continues to haunt him.
A Brand New Release from Connie Engel. Develop a Personal, Intimate Relationship with Jesus!
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to promenade on the beach with Jesus? To hold His hand while you commune and laugh together? How about sitting down with Him over a meal? As you read About Jesus you’ll view your portrayal of Him as the Son of Man, and the Son of God. You’ll connect the dots between the Lamb of God and the Reigning King. The author will encourage and guide you to enter into a place of oneness with Jesus. She describes scenes from the Bible with projective glimpses of what it really could have been like for Him. She formulizes emotions, painful encounters, persecutions, sorrows, immense joy, personality, character, and the intense love that Jesus has for all creation.
