Like Breath and Water weaves together the stories and prayers of the African people with the personal insights the team members had while on the pilgrimage. In Africa, the Americans are drawn deeper into the life of prayer by their new African friends. They discover that when we pray with someone, we enter into an intimate conversation with that person and with God, giving birth to a life-changing relationship.
Stunning color photographs draw the readers into the journey.
This book dances. It lets us taste the salt in the tears of Africa, and lets us hear the children giggle. But it goes even deeper. Like Breath and Water invites us to see these faces across the globe as our own family. The reality of that should fill us with hope, for we have much to learn from them. And it should keep us up at night, for we are still a very dysfunctional Family.

Like Breath and Water is an inspiring look at the reality of the African continent, in both its beauty and tragedy. This story is not only a challenge of our conceptions and apathy; but even more so, it is a testament to the unbounded power of prayer.
