    Love this book. It shows the miraculous provision of GOD. Yes, I do believe miracles still happen today. One quote that is really speaking to me, "But more deeply, in order for you to be useful to the Master here-or anywhere-you must be close to Him and in love with Him. To the degree that you are intimate with Him, you will know what to do, what you must do." I know this to be true and am striving for a more intimate relationship daily.

"We came to love the poorest of the poor into the Kingdom, not promise them a cheap road to health and wealth." "He calls me to love every single person I see every single day."

    Always Enough tells the story of Rolland and Heidi Baker's ministry to the nation of Mozambique. From small beginnings with a run-down orphanage, they have started a movement that planted 5,000 churches in ~6 years.

From small beginnings with a run-down orphanage, they have started a movement that planted 5,000 churches in ~6 years. Their amazing work is a testimony to the grace and mercy of God and continues to this day. So, what's the book like? Roughly alternating between Rolland and Heidi, the book begins with descriptions of their early lives and briefly details their work in Hong Kong and London; the main focus, however, is Mozambique. Mainly narrative, the story is interspersed with testimonies, diary entries and encouragement/challenges to the reader. The content is really, really good, but I felt it wasn't arranged to its full potential. Also, some details, such as where their resources come from, would have been interesting to read. They mention donations, and frequently mention miracles, such as when they fed 100 orphans from one pot of chilli; however, some information on the non-miraculous, "mundane" nitty-gritty of their ministry would have really added to the information. I get the impression this book is more of a summing up of their ministry in Mozambique (up to the date of writing), encouraging and challenging the reader. I believe they have written other, more narrative books, but this one really gives you the broad idea of God's amazing work in Mozambique through their ministry. If you want to be challenged, amazed, and knocked down by God's love, I highly recommend this book.

    This is one of the most life-changing, life impacting books I've ever read. Heidi and Rolland are radical lovers of God who have lived in garbage dumps and shacks all across Mozambique, taking in thousands and thousands of orphans with no way of taking care of them. They depend on Jesus every day to be all that they need...and He shows up and multiplies food daily, raises the dead, opens blind eyes and ears...etc. You can't come away without your heart being broken for the orphans and the widows This is one of the most life-changing, life impacting books I've ever read.

    An interesting, and inspiring, testimony of the Bakers' years serving the Lord in Mozambique. However, as much as I would love to see such revival and works of the Lord happen in America, unfortunately we are not nearly as needy as those in Mozambique. I am not sure American believers WANT to be in such dire straits so as to see such miracles as the Baker's describe in this book.

    It turns out, I'd read this book before I got it. The fine print inside reveals "Originally published under the title 'There is Always Enough'." So, don't buy both. Either is fine.

    One of my favorite books about God's power and His desire to lift the lowly out of the ash heaps. It's an inspiring book that I've read several times and plan on reading again.

    What a wonderful account, 5 stars all the way! I had two concerns initially: were the Bakers false prophets and would I get a detailed account of a missionary journey? After reading this book in it's entirety I am convinced the Bakers are legitimate (there's too much super detailed information), and my curiosity was satisfied about the real experiences of a missionary closer to the present time. I've seen some footage of them via youtube, and that's possibly somewhat spiritually amiss. However, What a wonderful account, 5 stars all the way!

    Wow ... this books is so so good. Rolland & Heidi Baker outline the early days of their relationship, their awakening to Christ's incredible love for them and the start of their ministry work in Mozambique. Heidi asked for a nation to minister to and the Lord gave them Mozambique. Their story demonstrates that old chestnut that the Lord simply desires those who are available. Those who make themselves available will be used and through daily surrender will be used extraordinarily. We get to see th Wow ... this books is so so good.

Heidi asked for a nation to minister to and the Lord gave them Mozambique. Their story demonstrates that old chestnut that the Lord simply desires those who are available. Those who make themselves available will be used and through daily surrender will be used extraordinarily. We get to see the sparseness and poverty of the people they love amongst, how the Lord uses them to powerfully demonstrate His love for the brokenhearted, poor and needy. We experience miracle after miracle as people are raised from the dead, the blind given sight, the deaf the ability to hear ... God wants to do all this and more. But it's not just the Bakers who are the conduits of Christ's love; far from it, the many pastors of the thousands of churches that have been established are also the conduit for Christ's miracles. It is a powerfully convicting life the Bakers are living. The power they experience but also the battles, the personal illnesses and devastation that the enemy throws at them like hundred-year old floods that set the country back decades. But through all of it we see an immense love, the Bakers for Jesus and Jesus for the Bakers. I want what they have. Be warned. Reading this book will challenge you to a life of daily surrender to Jesus.

    I really enjoyed reading about what God has done/is doing through the Baker's ministry; a lot of the testimonials were excellent. I was not so much a fan of some of the written style: Often it seemed they were trying to get across the major difficulties faced by the nation on a large scale, but generally in a way completely lacking in style. Undoubtedly, the attempt was to show these trails on the large, national, scale - yet I often felt like I was merely reading lists of statistics rather than I really enjoyed reading about what God has done/is doing through the Baker's ministry; a lot of the testimonials were excellent.

Undoubtedly, the attempt was to show these trails on the large, national, scale - yet I often felt like I was merely reading lists of statistics rather than seeing the graphic depiction (I think they were going for), which would have more readily drawn the reader in to the reality of the situation. They did subsidize the statistics with more personal testimonials (as I mentioned above), which were really what kept the book going most of the time. The other aspect of the written style I was not a fan of was that I often felt like the author (mainly Heidi (she and Rolland wrote chapters off and on)) was often too 'preachy.' I get that the point is to motivate the reader into action, but most people reading a book like this are already people who want to be in the action, besides, most of the content of testimonials is fairly challenging to the average Christian reader as it is.

    I don't know how to understand this book. If everything is as clear-cut as the authors say it is, then much of what has happened in their ministry is absolutely amazing. However, the experience of 99.999% of the people I know who honestly love God and love others would argue that things don't always go the way that the Bakers say they do. Why not? That's something I really want to understand, but not something that was answered at all by this book. A second, seperate issue I had was the constant I don't know how to understand this book.

A second, seperate issue I had was the constant descriptions of just how miserable and pathetic everyone they helped was. What is the point of dwelling on their misery? Did they get permission from these people to write such negative, personal things about them before putting it in a book for the whole world to see? For me there was far too much "these people were so bad off until we came and saved them" and far too little indication of genuine friendship and mutuality among the people they went to serve with. It's certainly possible that their ministry didn't look so one-sided - but the book makes it feel that way.

    A friend stopped by to give me this book over the weekend. I read the first chapter the first night and it so captivated my attention that it leap-frogged my to-read pile and I finished it in two days. The stories of God's miraculous provision, healings, and restoration of children inspired and challenged me. Think Acts meets Mozambique. I give it four stars only because the later chapters dragged a little for me.

Not because they weren't amazing stories, but I think I hit what Donald Maass calls the "churning of emotions": getting weary of revisiting the same emotion (in this case, equal parts compassion and awe) over and over. But I'd definitely recommend this title to anyone who wants to know if the Holy Spirit is still active and powerful in our world today, or who wants to be challenged to live sold-out for God's kingdom.

    I read this book while on a mission trip to Tanzania and it REALLY heavily inspired my service there and my outlook on life. I am currently re-reading the book, which is very rare for me, so that says a lot. I really love her love story that is sort of dug into in this book, and I just really admire this woman's story. I would suggest this book to those that want to be stretched and want a greater understanding of God's work in other parts of the world.

    A very powerful and deep book. I really enjoyed this, the authors heidi and rolland baker tell about their lives as missionaries in mozambique. They take in hundreds of orphaned children, make it through life threatening floods, and see that God still heals the sick, and raises the dead. An amazing read for any christian, i would recommend it for someone anticipating becoming a missionary. The authors show what it is to give your life fully to the lord to do what ever he wants with it.

    Incredible true story of Rolland & Heidi Baker's experiences as missionaries in Mozambique. The first part of the book is background - how they met and launched into ministry first in Asia, then England, and finally Mozambique. Read this last year before the trip and recently re-read in anticipation of the trip this year. Even though I've not actually seen the places in this book, having been in Moz. enables me to relate to situations and experiences.

    Really. I think God is miraculous and his provision is always enough. This story is encouraging because it talks about the modern day miracles God is doing for his people around the globe. I returned the book to my friend or I would love to copy a few of my favorite quotes. This is also a reminder of the diversity of worship within the body of Christ.

    This is the story of Rolland and Heidi Baker, focusing on their experiences in Mozambique as missionaries. In Africa they experienced not only disaster and poverty on a national level, but national repentance and revival as Africa responded to God. Through the Bakers' delegation of responsibility and leadership, at least five thousand churches were started in Africa in less than a decade.

    As recommended by a friend, I was encouraged by this wonderful story of modern evangelist missionaries in southeastern Africa. It took a while for me to realize - and confirm by looking at the book genre on the back - that they were charismatic in their approach, but they certainly were and had a zeal we don't often experience in the U.S. for sharing God's Good News.

    This book is a beautiful testimony of the living God. He is not a boxed up or even American God. He has not changed from the days of old and it is awesome to hear of the Lord's miracles and healing.

    5 stars for content and challenge, not necessarily writing style but I don't think the authors were concerned about winning any writing awards. I've been challenged and have a new addition to my list of "dangerous" books; books that will leave forever changed.

    I have no questions about the Baker's motivations or earnestness. They are a brother and sister of mine in Christ. But this book is filled with bad theology. It's written by confused people, and I'm concerned that they are only confusing others. It's also really badly written.

    This book is legitimately CRAZY. If you believe in God, read this book and see - through stories from halfway around the world - what amazing things He is willing to do when people are completely dependent on Him.

    This honestly was an easy read. Heidi and Rolland tell she amazing and truthfully unbelievable stories. If you're looking to be encouraged and really find out what God is capable of from a modern story this is a great place to go. Otherwise pick up your Bible.
