Missionary Author Larry Webb new book is about "Achieving Faith" and the miracles of God in providing funding for mission construction projects.
Based on this statement by William Carey, "I'm a dreamer and continue to dream of what can and will be, expecting great things from God, attempting great things for God", Larry shares these three principles of achieving faith for churches:
Out of the 33 Maverick Mission Trips chronicled in this book came this statement that expresses anticipation in experiencing the miraculous: BUT, Let's See What God Wants to Do!
This is the story of Jean Reichard Webb,, Larry's first wife. He states: "My purpose in writing her story is so that her grandchildren could meet her through these pages."
Larry is convinced that anyone can discover and experience God's best, in spite of their circumstances. In this volume, entitled Grandmother's Legacy, he documents for his grandchildren their grandmother's journey of discovery of God's best for her life.
Jean was the birth mother of our three sons and birth grandmother of our eight grandchildren. Larry states "Because none of our grandchildren had the privilege of knowing her, I felt compelled to share her life's journey".
Throughout her lifetime she faced the challenges of resolving the paradoxes between her perception of God's will for her life and the conflicting realities of her day-by-day situations and circumstances. By knowing Jean's personal journey Larry hopes her grandchildren will also aspire to discover and experience God's best for their lives.
This biography is an attempt to communicate, not just a family history, but also the values that drove the decision-making process as she served God.
Hope For Wounded Warriors
This exciting true story reads like a novel, In this exciting war story Larry shares the story of Bill Lentsch, a pastor friend of Larry's. Bill's life depicts the familiar phrase in Amazing Grace where we sing "I once was lost, but now am found."
This book is one Marine’s story of inner conflict leading to hopelessness following his experiences during World War II. As a wounded warrior, Bill Lentsch had experienced the frustrating feelings of apparent helplessness and hopelessness. As a sea-going Marine on the cruiser USS Vincennes in World War II, he was a “hot shell catcher”.
The story of Bill’s survival when the Vincennes sank is a story of miracles. In contrast, the story of his post-war rehabilitation and readjustment to civilian life, including a bad marriage, contains more than its share of dark pages and the consequences of poor choices. Bill admitted that contemplating the option of murder, then suicide, was a vivid reality.
Yet, the story of his later years brings hope and inspiration to others whose lives have been impacted by war. Bill shares his personal journey of how God is the God of second chances.
