Esther Recinos has a passion for people and a love for her adopted country of Guatemala, "The Land of Eternal Spring."

The book is full of thrilling stories about Esther's childhood and adulthood. Severe illnesses, clinic duty and nursing responsibilities, kidnappings, guerrilla warfare, love and marriage, evangelistic meetings, and jungle treks are just a few of the many stories that reveal God's divine protection and guidance in the mission field of Guatemala. Experience the sights and sounds, pain and sorrow, and hope and salvation in the Central American country of Guatemala through the eyes of Esther Recinos in Hope That Springs Eternal.

I love this book! The stories are simply written and heartwarming. My faith was strengthened as I read how He led in the lives of these dedicated people. It is a hard book to put down and I plan on purchasing more for my family. Thank you to the author for a wonderful gift!

I love reading mission stories and learning about the culture of other countries. This book serves both purposes. The author describes the country beautifully. And her stories are nothing short of dramatic. Especially the story about how she became a "nurse" in the clinic near their home at the tender age of 11. And her stories about the gorilla warfare is equally as intriguing. I highly recommend this book!
