Somewhere along the way, we realized that this book would be more than a book.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary Francis and Lisa decided to serve at a village in Africa that one of their friends started. This body of believers had been building a village to feed children dying of starvation, liberate women trapped in prostitution, and give hope and opportunity to a community ravished by poverty. Moved by what God was doing there for the poor, Francis and Lisa wanted to bless the ministry to double or triple its impact.
With another book already in motion, this time written together by Francis and Lisa, they saw an opportunity to use the book as a way to support the work in places like this village in Africa. They decided to self-publish with a team of volunteers to generate as much money possible to give away.
100% of net profits from each book sold goes straight to this vision. We would love to raise 5 million dollars to feed the hungry, free women from prostitution and spread the gospel to unreached places. But we can't do it alone and that's why we need your help.
All net proceeds are being directed to Crazy Love Ministries, a 501(c)3 registered in the state of California, and then are dispersed from there to several previously-selected partners for the book. Stay tuned for updates around impact and hope made from people like you. Support the work now by ordering your own copy: www.youandmeforever.org/preorder
