The amazing journey Manny Mill took from Cuba to being on the run from the FBI in Venezuela to running into the arms of Jesus Christ is detailed. Radically changed by his conversion and prison experience, Mill founded Koinonia House National Ministries, a post-prison ministry that helps others to bridge the gap from prison to the local church.
Teetering on the brink of financial and personal disaster, Manny's pursuit of pleasure led him to the depths of human despair. Then, something turned him 180 degrees. That something was actually a Someone - Jesus Christ. In this candid and vividly personal book, Manny tells his story of descent into debauchery and ascent to radical redemption. Manny's words will confront you. His experiences will thrill you. And his heart for those who are entangled in sin (as he once was) will challenge you to think of your relationship with the God of the Universe in a new and fresh way. Book jacket.

What do you think of when you hear the word "Cuba"? Do you think of Fidel Castro? Or, if you are old enough, the Bay of Pigs or the Cuban Missile Crisis? My children might remember the little boy, Elian Gonzalez, who lost his mother while fleeing Cuba and became a national icon as government leaders debated where he should live. I can relate to that little boy. I love my Cuban family and my homeland, but I cannot forget the suffering that still exists there today. In 1956, the year I was born, Cuba was a popular place for a weekend getaway. From Key West, Florida, to Havana was a ninety-mile trip across the Straits of Florida. Illiteracy was high, and about 25% of the country's adult males were unemployed. The need for change was obvious, so many were glad when Fidel Castro came down from his rebel headquarters in the mountains on January 1, 1959. A white dove on his shoulder, a Cuban cigar in his mouth, a long beard on his face, and the strength of his resolve gave the impression that he was a type of savior for the Cuban people. I was three years old.
