As a woman flees an abusive boyfriend, her gas tank on empty, money materializes in her empty purse. Millions of fire flies suddnely appear and offer guiding light to desperate refugees trying to find a path through a mountain storm. Tow womenstrongly sense that a missionary priest, far away, needs prayer at teh exact moment when he faces catastrophe.
These are jus a few of the more than thirty true stories recounted in this revised edition of Angels and Wonders by national best-selling author Joan Wester Anderson. Writing with her signature charm and warmth, Joan Wester Anderson recounts stories about angels that demonstrate, with convincing simplicity, that prayer is the key to a relationship with a loving God.
