"Taking stock of the last few months spent here at the border of Darfur, Sudan -- the cusp of hell -- I savored how God had knit these women into the fiber of my soul in ways that I'd never imagined possible back in the day of my corporate-ladder climbing. Love for them had changed my whole world. It had changed me. Now it was time for me to take what I'd been shown here back to my home in America with prayers that it, too, would be transformed. My soul felt as restless and insecure as my feat did shuffling at the edge of the cliff."
That's just a little taste of Passport Through Darkness: A True Story of Danger and Second Chances by Kimberly L. Smith. I have this one courtesy of The B&B Media Group. This is Smith's story about her mission trip to Africa. There are deep religious ties at the heart of the book, but I got it to become more knowledgeable about the human rights violations going on in Africa. I have a feeling this won't be an easy story to read. Look at that cover. The skull leaves nothing to the imagination.
