An Insider's Compelling View of Life in a Muslim Country
When Audra Grace Shelby and her husband felt God calling them to minister in the Middle East, she was fearful--how would she raise her children in the heart of conservative Islam?
Armed with prayers and a faith that always seemed too small, the family made the move to Yemen, enduring deadly illness, uncertainty, and the unnerving experience of being Christians in an Islamic culture.
Yet God was at work, and Audra was invited to see what few Christian women have seen: behind the veils of Muslim women. Here she shares about the friendships she forged, about the opportunities to minister when her new friends' hopes shriveled and their own religion faltered--and how the grace of God touched lives in the midst of an enemy stronghold. With humor, passion, and honesty, she shows readers glimpses of life deep in the heart of Islam and the yearning heart of our loving God.

Behind the veils of Yemen
This was a wonderful story. It blessed me to hear about Gods faithfulness and love for all of us and His desire to be known and loved by all of his children. It reveled to me how important my prayers are for those deceived by their Muslim religion. I knew it was His desire that I pray for their salvation, I was just not as aware of how important those prayers truly are to Him and those serving in that difficult mission field.
Wonderful stories and analogies of how God uses our life issues to speak to us.
