Stories of God at Work
March 14, 1965―the day Barbara’s life took a very difficult turn. She and her husband were missionaries in Burundi, Africa, and had only been married 11 months. Barbara had just come home from the hospital with their 2-week-old baby. That evening, four masked gunmen burst into their home, brutally shot her husband, and left her a widow with a newborn. But amidst the grief, God was always there prompting Barbara to confidently say, “He is the most faithful friend that we could ever know.”

There is no heaven that has a little corner of hell in it. God is determined to make you pure, holy, and right, and He will not allow you to escape from the scrutiny of the Holy Spirit for even one moment.
