After all, God is God over Nepal and all nations, He holds the hearts of leaders in His sovereign administration.

So let love hope and let love plead, To God on behalf of a prospective little daughter-to-be. Wow…what a journey. Due to Nepal being shut down to adoptions, we kept our adoption paperwork there while we started the process from China. Now, having finished this process in China, unless the Lord does something totally unexpected which is obviously not beyond His power or prerogative to do , we will likely not be able to adopt from Nepal.
I wrote a poem last year for Heather from the perspective of a waiting child in Nepal, still thinking that we might be able to adopt from there. Even though that no longer looks like a possibility, we trust that God will open up other avenues beyond adoption for us to minister to children there. Two years ago, you prayed and then decided to start, An adoption process during which God would lead your heart… To focus on Nepal, rich with culture yet great in need, Where children face both poverty and high mortality.
So you started the paperwork and began to complete different tasks, A home study and fingerprints, whatever our governments asked… Until that paperwork was finally complete, And you officially mailed it off for me. As we prepare to head home with our new daughter, we are keenly aware of the number of orphans in Nepal, China, America, and around the world who still have no home.
Heading Home - Testosterhome
Amidst such massive need, I praise God for growing numbers of His children who are choosing to care for these children. It is a near future tale uniting Vietnam War era events with today.
But what if you knew the week? When every Christian simultaneously receives a message that Christ will return within the coming week the work is thrown into stark panic. Two old friends, hardened combat veterans from the closing days of the Vietnam War, set Heading Home is the first in a new series from John Robinson, author of the Joe Box series. Two old friends, hardened combat veterans from the closing days of the Vietnam War, set out on a suspenseful quest to redeem that time.
If you knew for sure that the end of the world was coming up sometime this week, what would you do? Nick had turned his life over to Christ after being wounded while serving. He enlists his brother in Christ, CT Barnes who had also been in the service, to find their former mates. What they found instead was a war that was out of this world. I could have easily started at chapter 18 and enjoyed the images of the two time periods intertwined from there.
Each chapter is short, just a couple pages, and Robinson uses plenty of words to tell the story. It certainly is thought-provoking. I received a copy of the book from Title Trakk for this review. Aug 03, Bruce Judisch rated it it was amazing. Just when you think the Last-Days genre has been pretty much exhausted, John Robinson slips one in under the radar that knocks your socks off.
Clearing the high bar he set in his previous novels, he infuses brutal force into his prose and remains steadfastly unapologetic in his message--both of which are essential to pull off a story like "Heading Home.
Robinson does a great job of working on two planes of spirituality simultaneously in this story of healing and redemption. You've likely already identified the higher plane from the first sentence of this review: the redemption of mankind and the healing of a created order groaning and suffering as it eagerly awaits revelation of the sons of God. The second plane is at the personal level, and it's where Mr. Robinson excels at the storytelling. Christ's return is imminent, and there's no time to lose as these closest of friends seek out former comrades-in-arms from their days in Viet Nam.
Nick and CT consider it paramount to witness to the men with whom they shared the most intense days of their lives before it's too late. That's what you do for your buddies. It's what you do for God. But there's a new battle looming, one with potentially devastating consequences.
While Nick and CT search for their old friends, a satanic cult has targeted their home church for destruction, including their families, their dearest friends and themselves. No one is aware of the plot until the cult lauches its attack at the crux point of the story. Oh no, you will not. In short, "Heading Home" achieves in one concise, high-powered novel what it took "Left Behind" to do in--how many volumes did the series finally turn out to be?
Heading Home With God
All due respect and credit to Messrs. Jenkins and LaHaye, but, honestly, I gave up somewhere around number three or four. Sorry if that offends any die-hard LB fans; chalk it off to my limited attention span. In any event, if you ran the marathon with "Left Behind," you'll enjoy the sprint with "Heading Home.

Nov 02, Ellen Kennedy rated it it was amazing. Contemporary Christian fiction has often been criticized for being saccharine or amateurish. What's needed are more Christian writers who ply their craft with excellence.

The book is great, exhilarating fun. The central characters VietNam vets seeking out their scattered brothers-in-arms for one last imperative rescue are three-dimensional, funny and imperfect, doing their best in a harrowing situation and trusting God to make things right. The Contemporary Christian fiction has often been criticized for being saccharine or amateurish. Their camaraderie rings true;men who have fought side by side have a unique bond.
Oct 10, Bonnie Toews rated it really liked it. Powerful, vivid writing with character-exclusive idiocyncracies. Realistic and painful Viet Nam scenes. Already my mind is flooded with images I will never forget. When reading the book you should learn something about what Israel was to make of the book in light of their peculiar needs and challenges.
