Paper Poppies

The child in Paper Poppies was a crippled orphan with TB whose body was strapped to a hospital bed in Siberia, but whose mind and heart were on an amazing and memorable quest for Truth. Marianna sifted through the myriad of beliefs that filled empty souls during the Communist years in Russia: Soviet atheism, old folklore and superstitions, and empty religious traditions. When, in her pain and loneliness, one Christian dared to share her Christian faith with Marianna, a seed was planted that later led her to Christ.

That child was...

Marianna Vekhova, a graduate of Moscow State University, School of Journalism. She worked as an editor for a children's publishing house, then wrote scripts for children's radio and television. She has published children's books in Russian. She also has volunteered at a Moscow mission evangelizing street children.

You will be blessed by this poignant story of loss, confusion and pain, but reminded of the scandalous love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  He can break through any barrier with His grace.  What wonderful work Ms Vekhova now does because of God's amazing grace poured out in her life.  Truly, what the enemy meant for evil in her life, our God used for His glory...the saving of many lives!

The book is a mere 176 pages, but packs a powerful story.  Hurry to today, because the Amazon Kindle version of Paper Poppies is available from March 15-19 FREE.  Just visit HERE
Happy Reading,
