A year ago now my book – “The Groups of Hope: walking with God in difficult times” was published. I am into the second printing with 200 copies in the hands of interested people.
The Handbook outlines the program of the Groups of Hope and has been used by facilitators to understand how to facilitate the groups. The program has been used in churches, women’s groups and penal institutions, with both women and men.
I didn’t have a book launch last year, so this spring I am holding an event at Spring Garden Baptist Church in Toronto to celebrate that the book and the program are reaching out to those who are hurting and in need of encouragement.
It is being held on Sunday, May 16th from 2-4 pm and is open to anyone who would like to come to ‘celebrate’ with me.
The book is now translated into Telugu in India and into Spanish in Bolivia, and is being translated as well into Oriya, one of the languages in the state of Orissa in India.
It is exciting to see that the book is helpful in explaining how to conduct the groups. The book contains short examples of individuals whose lives have been impacted by God as they attended the program.
