Mark Witas always assumed that life was a series of random chances. An accident. Then one Friday night his phone rang. It was the mother he'd never known. At birth she had given him up for adoption -- with the stipulation that he was not to be given to a Seventh-day Adventist family. Now, 29 years later, she found him -- only to discover that he was a Seventh-day Adventist pastor. In this book Mark Witas tells the story of all that happened between his adoption and his call to the ministry. His lighthearted adventure in faith will inspire you with the assurance that you have been uniquely crafted from birth -- chosen before time -- to serve a special purpose in God's great plan. With special meaning for parents with children who have left the church, Witas' story is a message of hope for all who wonder about God's leading in their lives. Book jacket.
