Orinoco! God at Work in Venezuela

Front Cover
Xulon Press, 2005 - Religion - 368 pages
"Orinoco! God at Work in Venezuela follows the growth of the evangelical church in Eastern Venezuela. It tells the story from a macro perspective that points to a dovetailing of world events-a God-sized picture-that led to individual and particular encounters. The book alternates between examining details of pioneer missionary life and using key lookout points to provide a perspective from which to interpret the details of history and God's guiding hand. Orinoco! pulls together multiple examples of North American missionaries and Venezuelans who sought to focus on what was most important, sometimes getting caught up by their own limitations, lack of knowledge, and understanding. Despite internal and external pressures, they persevered and believed in what God was doing in their midst."-- from back cover.

What a blessing this book has been for my family in times of tribulation around the world. My grandfather Pedro Arriojas is mentioned in this book, and it has given us a beautiful view of the true story of my grandpa, who believed and trusted the Lord til the end. To this day there are 4 generations of believers in my family because of him, who now I know worked hard to spread the gospel in eastern Venezuela.
Thank you for a beautiful, well-writen book.
