I was given a copy of When Grace Showed Up through the publisher and their partnership with Netgalley in exchange for my honest review which is as follows:
This is the Story of Tich and Joan Smith and how God used them broken Vessels to help a broken people.
Tich and Joan Smith were raised in South Africa but during the Aparteid they had left.
Tich talks about a friends murder and dealing with the diagnosis of a three year olds girl life threatening illness.
They talk about getting married and God given them a vision to build a village in Africa for the Sick and Orphans. A village that would give these people a place to belong.
Tich and Joan Smith go from well known Sports stars in South Africa to advocating for the Orphans and the sick in Amaroti they set up scholarships for kids who have a desire to receive a better education and healthcare for those who need that.
Soon they build a village named Liv that offer food and shelter and more importantly they teach them about Christ.
I give When Grace Showed Up five out of five stars.
