Imagine being charged with pastoring a small church in rural Mexico that’s too poor to pay you, forcing you to work most days to feed your family rather than study God’s word to feed your flock.
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Books for Discipleship Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
What a wonderful feeling it is to know you’ve helped a fellow Christian grow spiritually. Esbeydi (above at left), a believer in Mexico, received a Spanish copy of David Servant’s popular book, The Disciple-Making Minister (Spanish is just one of 32 translations of this popular book), and it helped save her marriage!
In January, each of Heaven's Family's 21 Focused Ministry Directors gave a short, 10-minute presentation about their accomplishments in 2015 and their upcoming goals for 2016. We're excited about what the Lord has done, and what He has in store for the remainder of this year!

The author of The Disciple Making Minister, David Servant, and I have a lot in common. We share the same first name, obviously, and we both work for Heaven's Family. But we also both wear glasses, and have strikingly dark, thick hair. This can sometimes cause confusion when corresponding with people overseas whom neither of us have met in person.
