Caroline Snyder’s book is Yes, God Can! I was born in in England and raised in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe in Africa and I came to the States in 1966. God has done some amazing miracles in the lives of my family. He has also seen us through some really tough times. My book tells these stories and also some life changing stories of others. It was written to inspire all to believe in the awesome God the Christians believe and serve.

All funds raised will be given to missions here and abroad. We sponsor Feed the Children, Jerusalem Prayer Team that feeds Holocaust victims returning to Israel, Life Outreach that gives clean water and feeds orphans , American Bible Society, along with about 10 other organizations to help the needy.
