Children of God
"If you take that money with you, I'll wait until you have spent it. Then I will show you that I am able to look after you."
The child-like trust in God's
guidance and care is not childish or immature. It is a conscious choice
that God himself is calling us to make. But why do we often think of God as our last resort?
We know we can ask for His help when we've exhausted all our resources and have no one else to turn to. But what if we still have other options, would He rather have us rely on Him?
CHILDREN OF GOD is a touching true story about faith and fear, letting go and trust — and God's amazing, detailed provision in the middle of impossible situations. The events primarily took place in Ontario, Canada, where the Sarentos used to live along with their three little children.
Through their life story, Markku and Johanna Sarento teach about the faithfulness and love of God with a fresh and inspiring touch. The book offers new perspectives on many of the most essential views of the Christian faith.

"All that the Church and its members need for the manifestation of the mighty power of God in the world, is the return to our true place, the place that belongs to us, both in creation and redemption, the place of absolute and unceasing dependence upon God."
