One day Wanda Jones' 5-year-old son came home from kindergarten and asked her, "What's wrong with my color?" A year later her husband was thrown out of a London hotel. Such incidents made Wanda want to lash out. Instead, she fought her battles in the quiet of her own room-in prayer. Their story encourages black Christians to persevere in spite of opposition. But it also challenges their white brothers and sisters to examine their attitudes in the light of God's Word. And finally, it celebrates God's victory in advancing His kingdom in spite of the frailties within His body of believers. God blessed their ministry as it grew from its street-corner beginnings in New York City into a radio ministry eventually reaching across the ocean to Africa. When Howard was invited to join the Billy Graham organization, Wanda's hope for unity among black and white kingdom workers was realized. Although discrimination still plagues the church, as does materialism, violence, and declining moral values, Wanda's story testifies that these problems can be overcome. Just as blacks were emancipated during the Civil War, so are Christians emancipated from the bondage of sin, says Wanda.
