An Amish Awakening will be free:
More than just another going to Heaven story. More than one more Amish book being thrown into the mix.
Airbrushed Amish this is not. The gritty collides with the glorious. Blunt bullies tenderhearted. And the blood of Jesus’ never fails.
Churches filled up. Crowds gathered when they found out that this Amish man would be speaking at an Amish person’s barn or workshop. And countless people dropped by his home unannounced. They wanted to hear his story.
This is the true story of Mark Paul Troyer. Yes, it’s the story everyone wanted to hear. And the book: An Amish Awakening, is Mark’s life—story. His amazing story. An Amish story like no other.
With tragedy and triumph—the book that was nearly stillborn because of controversy and emotions has come to life. Three and a half years after an abrupt halting of publication; it was time—God’s timing. Now An Amish Awakening is ready to shine. “Awake, O sleeper. And arise from the dead…”
The Story? As Mark puts it, “One day at work I was caught up into a whirlwind.” And taken to Heaven. And so much more.
From the author of the Jesus at Walmart trilogy. Rick Leland.
Rick Leland writes from his home in South Haven, MI.
With over a decade of professional writing experience and hundreds of published works, Jesus at Walmart was his first trilogy. And his latest book is the true story An Amish Awakening.
He holds a degree in Christian Ministry through Indiana Christian University and trained for two years with Christian Writers Guild.
When not writing, Rick can often be found building things. And when he’s not doing that, spending time with his grandchildren and playing the mandolin are two activities which give him great pleasure.
And sometimes he gets to do both at the same time. When playing in a band he affectionately calls the Sammy Schrock Band (named after his great grandfather). The band is comprised of his granddaughter Magaly, Nancy-his wife, and himself. He says, “We’re kind of entry level—like eighth graders. Still it’s a blast. And you have to start somewhere.” The Sammy Schrock Band performs mainly original worship songs, but they do have a nice version of No Longer Slaves (I Am a Child of God) in their rotation.
Rick attends to his fitness by running on the beach or trails and participating in an occasional mud run.
While all of these activities are eclipsed by going for a walk on the shores of Lake Michigan with his wife of nearly 35 years–Nancy. He says, “God has blessed us to be able to live five-blocks from the beach in South Haven, Michigan.”
