Sharing Christ Even in the Hard Places

I have been reading some excerpts from this book by Kate McCord and listening to an interview with her on

This is a remarkable young woman that had such a burden for the women of Afghanistan. After 9/11 she was able to go there in a humanitarian role. She shares Christ and His love for all people through everyday circumstances with women who feel they have been forgotten by God. The women she meets have difficult lives, many are in abusive situations, all are in arranged marriages, life is very hard for them, but, the stories are beautiful. The way she brings God to the situations she faces and the women behind the blue burqas  is extraordinary  I am inspired by her faith. After listening to her story I am encouraged to continue to share Christ with my friends, neighbors, and family, even in what I feel are hard places ......Give this book a read and let me know your thoughts



  1. Wow! I've never heard of this book, but I'm going to pick it up now. I spent almost a year in Afghanistan and was able to interact fairly often with Afghan women and children. It's a terrible culture for women to live in.

    1. wow....I bet you have a lot of stories to share as well...let me know what you think of the book!
