Purchase: Are Not My People Worthy? The Story of Matthew 25: Ministries
A child's eyes haunt Wendell Mettey, founder of Matthew 25: Ministries. Mettey spoke with the child's father as he waited hours for treatment for his critically-burned infant. "Take our picture so all can see the conditions in our country," the Nicaraguan father said. Mettey has never forgotten the child, father, or the needs he saw. Mettey has dedicated the years since to improving life in Nicaragua and other war-torn or impoverished areas around the world. Are Not My People Worthy? tells how a minister from Cincinnati found himself called to alleviate pain and suffering in the U.S. and in nations thousands of miles away. Are Not My People Worthy? also reveals how the voice of God encouraged Mettey to think bigger, dream extravagantly, and accomplish unheard-of humanitarian feats with the help of many volunteers, generous corporations, brave government officials, the U.S. Air Force, and other caring people and organizations.

My Thoughts:

Let me start of by saying that I am one that normally shy's away from any book based in religion. I have passed up many books that look promising due to the amount of religion in the book. However when I received Are Not My People Worthy? i started reading and soon found myself immersed in the story of how Matthew 25: Ministries started from a single trip and visions.
I loved reading about how Mettey grew along with M25M, even through all the struggles and moving that had to be done. I read the book in a little over an hour and not once did the religion in the book cause me to walk away. My favorite part of the book was at the end..."As long as God gives me strength I will do all I can to change sad little eyes into happy little eyes."
