Novel Update

I sit at the computer typing chapter three of Chosen Ones which profiles a couple experiencing infertility and a child enslaved in sex trafficking. People in crisis, yet worlds apart. As I research the topic of trafficking my heart breaks over the millions of women and children who fall prey to sex lords every year. Promised a better life, they unwittingly land in the hands of pimps who use and abuse for the almighty dollar. It sickens me to think that in our depraved world much simply comes down to money.

As with my last novel in the Born for India trilogy, I need much prayer to complete this task. I desire to be another voice of awareness for the children. I'm learning that they aren't just on the other side of the world, but perhaps right in my own backyard. And that is the most sickening thought of all.

What a blessing to come across your site! I am a 24-year-old homeschool graduate and a web search for ladies who speak to young women's groups yielded a link to your blog. God is so good! When I was nine years old the Lord called me to India and I've been tremendously blessed to have been there six times so far. Now I'm waiting to see when and how He sends me back! Thank you for sharing about your recent trip.

I'll be sending you an e-mail inquiry regarding speaking.

May the Lord bless you abundantly today! :)

Eileen, I just received the email from Rachel about your new novel. I am so excited to read it! I ordered one copy for my daughter, Meghan, who will be a sophomore at Moody Bible Institute this fall and wants to be a missionary. I also ordered one for myself, and I'll share that one with Lindsay. It's hard to find good books here in Costa Rica! God bless you as you continue to write and to mentor your lovely daughters. In His Grace,
