Barrenness, regardless of the cause, causes heartache and pain so harsh it seems impossible to approach life again. But for Josh and Amy Bottomly, Africa opened a door to a new life, the life they had dreamed of. Through a little baby named Silas Tesfamariam, the Bottomlys found their dreams realized. Clouding this new life were the storms of Africaa "'where beauty and tragedy, wealth and poverty, and humanity and sub-humanity coexist in a jagged tension.' Thrown into the squalls of this drastically different culture, the native Oklahomans learned to see God in a different light. Not only is he the giver of children, he's the manager of nations and the keeper of hearts. Join Josh and Amy Bottomlya "and Tesfamariam too a "in this inspiringly true journey from ashes to africa. Like the authors, your life will never be the same again.
