The Oppression To Redemption journey
OAKTON, VA. (PRWEB) MAY 12, 2018
In 1968, 11-year-old Minh Phuong watched in horror as her father and two siblings were gunned down by the Vietcong in their backyard in war-torn Vietnam. Though she escaped the bullets that night, prison, torture and rape would follow.
STRAINING FORWARD ($19.49, paperback, 9781545631638; $9.99, e-book, 9781545631645) chronicles Phuong’s life in Vietnam, as a refugee in France and Australia, and her spiritual journey from blind faith to ordination as a Presbyterian pastor in the United States.
“Minh Phuong’s escape from Vietnam in 1975 provides hope for today’s refugees who flee war, imprisonment, rape and torture,” Michelle Rahal says. “This book is an unvarnished tale of strength and perseverance that ultimately leads to an unassailable faith in God.”
STRAINING FORWARD is a riveting, spiritual journey of hope and healing that reminds readers that even in the loneliest and most desolate moments, they are never truly alone.
“This book is about redemption, resilience and forgiveness,” the author states. “I pray readers would be spiritually transformed as they contemplate these traits in the lives of children and refugees everywhere who feel unloved, unworthy or lost against a backdrop of war, death and abuse.”
Michelle Rahal is a former radio news reporter and published educator. She is a graduate of Hofstra University and holds a master’s degree in education from the University of New York at Buffalo. Rahal lives in Virginia with her husband.
