I began this journey in 2006 when I awoke one morning with an outline of a book and a God-given urgency to complete it. That led to a four year writing adventure which ended with the self-publication of two 6-week long devotionals, The Jesus Ultimate Therapist: Finding Hope and Healing and Jesus, The Ultimate Therapist: Healing without Limits. Their intent is to deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ.
I thought my work was finished until I was asked over and over again by my counseling clients for the purpose of suffering in their lives. Although it's a huge topic and one written about considerably, I wrote a 4-week devotional, Pain as a Starting Point. This book explores how pain can act as an opportunity to draw us closer to God. I never promoted that work because as it was released I learned my husband of 31 years was dying of terminal cancer and required my personal care.
For the past two years I have been living in Mexico. What a lovely country and beautiful people. They are so hungry for God. I was surprised to discover Christian believers' access to Christian literature is very limited. Most publications are never translated into Spanish or distributed to Mexico. Many fellow Latin American believers expressed interest in obtaining a copy of one or more these devotionals. I didn't see a way to do it unless and/or until God brought a Spanish translator into my life.
I met that woman this weekend! Cintia Stirling, author of Love on Hold, was born in Monterrey Mexico. She now lives with her husband in Texas. She has background in translating English to Spanish and Spanish to English and has agreed to undertake this project!
The cost of translation is $3629. Any money in excess of that balance will be used to purchase newly translated paperback devotionals so that they can be distributed to the local churches in Playa del Carmen and the greater Riviera Maya area of Mexico.
Thank you so much for your participation in this project and God bless!
