Broken Windows and Difficult Ministries

Have you ever wondered why some ministries seem to have more fruit than others? Difficult ministries raise questions that can be embarrassing to ask? I’ll be discussing this in the next Deb’s Book Blast that comes out Thursday, May 12.

Broken Windows begins with a prologue in which teenager Jordan Axtell overhears a pastor talking to his missionary parents. The pastor decides that the few results the Axtells have produced in Taiwan are not worth his church’s continued support.
