Great True Story – New Book in the Ready

Standard

It has been many years since Michael de Jong hung out with Mother Teresa. He told me that the first encounter he had with the soon to be announced Saint, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient, was when she held her hand up with all fingers spread wide. She said to him, while using her fingers to count out each of her words,”You – do – this – for – me!” “Me,” she quickly explained to him was not herself, but God. Soon de Jong was given his first assignments in working for Mother Teresa and would return to work with her for another seven years.  Prior to that fateful day de Jong takes us on his journey of a searching and unhappy man after a lifetime of pursuing the almighty buck. His adventure takes him across many parts of India pursuing false gurus before finding himself and his inner peace is the slums of Calcutta, assisting the work of a remarkable woman in the name of God.
