On May 13, 1987, during a moonlit night in Mozambique, six missionaries and an eighteen-month-old girl were abducted at gunpoint from their missions base and medical clinic, near Gondola, by heavily armed guerrilla soldiers of the Mozambique National Resistance Movement (MNR). Associated with bombings and murders, the MNR claim the Marxist government, Frelimo, had ruined Mozambique. The missionaries were taken for the international attention of their resistance. Throughout the ordeal, Trish Perkin's had her relationship with God and those around her challenged and built. It has taken twenty-two years for Trish to come to terms with all that happened. She reflects in stunning, adventurous detail how God brought them through those terrifying events. For Trish, the story she writes is of the profound effect this experience had on her understanding of humanity, the rivers of bloodshed throughout Africa, and the constant hope in Christ that is weaved throughout the pages of this book. The book explores the deepest dealings God had in these missionary lives that tested them and their relationships...but ultimately showed them they were not in Rebel Hand's, but His.

About the Author:

Trish Perkins was born in Rhodesia, which is now Zimbabwe. Ten days after marrying Roy Perkins, she went into Mozambique and the rest is history - She has been there 23 years, witnessing five rebel attacks during seven years of war. With her husband they experienced five years of drought during which they were responsible for feeding 25,000 people. Trish obeyed the Lord's instructions to allow others to join them to establish a boys and girls children's home, farm, school, technical school, clinic and other projects which have still to be completed. Their aim is that the Kingdom of God should come to Mozambique, and to the nations who send teams to them to work in Mozambique.
