THUMBNAIL

Montana’s Child: A Memoir of Life in Big Sky Country

by Gwen Ellis

This is a new book by Gwen Ellis. In this warm-hearted sometimes  hilarious sometimes poignant account, she relates what it was like to grow up in Montana’s Big Sky country in the 1940s when houses had no electric dryers or dishwashers and many people burned wood and coal to keep warm and to cook. This is the story of self-made Montanans extracting game from the forests to feed their families, growing and preserving huge garden crops to carry them through brutally cold winters. Here you will experience the smell of metal that clung to smelter workers clothes when they returned from their shift each day. You’ll hear the bawl of calves and pounding of horses hooves as cowboys and ranchers care for their herds.  And you’ll see the sky—the magnificent vault of clear blue big sky that seems to go on into eternity. She tells of air so crisp and clean it seems newly-minted. Hike beside her on woodland paths lined with bear grass throwing its huge white plumes into the summer breeze. Relive never-to-be-forgotten camping trips into the Bob Marshall Wilderness. From copper mines strikes that turn ugly to a major riot at the Montana State Prison located just blocks from her home to crazy kids’ stuff like making stew on a grander scale, capturing a live goose and insisting her  parents bring it 600 miles home in a cage in the car. This is the story of homemade and homegrown people with fiercely independent spirits who fill the state of Montana with a powerful and creative can-do attitude that exists yet today. This is the story of a good life made exceptional by love.

Its Not OK With Me Cover

It’s Not Okay With Me
By Janine Maxwell

The world-changing events of 9/11 became the catalyst that first sent Janine Maxwell into a deep depression and later to the darkest parts of Africa in her search for the meaning of life. What happened next was a roller coaster ride from the board room of one of the largest marketing companies in Canada to the streets of Africa where she found herself standing face to face with the AIDS pandemic and trying to understand what to do with 15 million orphans who are left in its wake. Her story is brutally honest and will take you straight to the heart of the issue of Africa’s great need.

It’s Not Okay With Me provides truth and insights into Africa in a way that is fresh and filled with hope. Even the most seasoned African traveler will have their eyes opened again. The truth is that there is hope in a place that seems hopeless. All we need to do is say, “It’s not okay with me, either” and then act.

Is It OK with You front cover

Is it Okay With You?
By Janine Maxwell

Janine Maxwell is back again with a book that tells more of Heart for Africa’s amazing work on one of the world’s neediest continents. It takes up where her first book, It’s Not Okay With Me, left off. Raw in style and truth, this book digs deeper into the who, what, why, and how of the AIDS pandemic and the plight of millions of orphans left in its wake.

Is It Okay With You? challenges each of us to make a choice and then take action. While it is hard to read about children living in abject poverty and abuse, Janine challenges us to not wallow in our own sadness and apathy, but rather to be moved to action and do something.

Footprints on African Hearts and Lands
By Gwen Ellis and Dr. Elizabeth Hynd

A story of one man’s life that will challenge your faith and service to God.
The life of Dr. Samuel Wilson Hynd has been devoted to the care of the people of the Kingdom of Swaziland. In this tiny landlocked country he has battled malaria, leprosy, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and multiple other diseases for most of his 90 years of life. Not only has this amazing servant of God treated subjects of the Kingdom of Swaziland, but he served the Government of Swaziland as Minister of Health, and acted as personal physician to two Kings and the Royal Family. He has fought against poverty, injustice, drug, alcohol, and smoking abuse. He has given his resources and mobilized others to give for evangelistic crusades and for training pastors, teachers, youth leaders, and others in ministry as well as youth outreaches, children’s evangelism, and building churches, schools, and health facilities. He has contributed his finances and his time to rescue and treat orphans found in the most dire circumstances and need. They have become his adopted grandchildren. Such is his expertise and dedication that he has been bestowed awards from the King of Swaziland, Queen Elizabeth II, and by every organization he served.
Among the achievements in which he takes most joy are the many educational facilities that have been built in the country including nursing and teacher training facilities, youth centres, media facilities, and most recently, the founding of Southern Africa Nazarene University located in the city of Manzini on the land developed by his father, Dr. David Hynd.
Samuel Hynd is a man who will be found serving his God and his people until the day he dies. He is still opening clinics, working at the Acts II AIDS clinic he founded shortly after his 80th birthday, and caring for the children of New Hope Centre.
Samuel Wilson Hynd, B.Sc., M.B., Ch.B., D.T.M. , & H., D. Sc. (M.D.) C.B.E., was born in Glasgow, Scotland, but at the age of five months emigrated to Swaziland with his parents. He lives in a cottage near Manzini, the city where he has labored all his life to help the Swazi people and their nation.

A Little Child Shall Lead Them, picture

A Little Child Shall Lead Them
By Dr. Elizabeth Hynd
With Gwen Ellis

Swaziland, the smallest nation in Africa, is being devastated by HIV/AIDS. Thousands of children are left with no one to care for them. Life expectancy has dropped to twenty-nine years of age. But God has a plan, and there is a place on Bethany Mountain where the sounds of laughter, joy, and music can be heard! New Hope Centre is home to orphan children who are overcoming their fears, losses, and hopelessness, and developing into leaders who have a lively confidence in God. His Majesty King Mswati III, reigining King of Swaziland, wants more homes like this one as these children are already making waves towards taking their nation to a place of prominence among the nations of the world. They are “orphans today. . . leaders tomorrow.”
