Mitchell’s story begins where all of our stories begin—in the womb. However, his life was altered forever when his mother drank a supposedly innocuous glass of water during the first trimester of her pregnancy. They were living on Wurtsmith Air Force Base (AFB), Michigan, where his father was a Captain in the United States Air Force and B-52G Aircraft Commander. This book recounts their journey from their individual points of view, shaped by their own biases and choices, while serving Mitchell for three decades as a profoundly handicapped person requiring around-the-clock care.
You will be challenged by this godly family as they share their hearts with you:
“We understand now that our family was prepared in advance to serve Mitchell’s ministry in order to display the heart of God through his people.”
Every family has a Mitchell. You may not have a profoundly handicapped child, but you may feel OVERWHELMED with the circumstances of your life. Let this family lead you through their experiences of Mitchell’s ministry and God’s challenge to us all.
