"Old Testament Prophets for Today" by Carolyn J. Sharp

                              

Prophets can be mediators who connect us to the holiness of God, they can be idealists whose desires for humanity call us to new heights of God’s desire, and they can be companions for us in the confusing journey through our complicated world.

This offers a friendly introduction to some of the Old Testament’s most interesting and often overlooked prophets.

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

By William Kamkwamba

A UMW Reading program book  

William Kamkwamba was born in Malawi, a country where magic ruled and modern science was mystery. It was also a land withered by drought and hunger. But William had read about windmills, and he dreamed of building one that would bring to his small village a set of luxuries that only 2 percent of Malawians could enjoy: electricity and running water.

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is a remarkable true story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity. It will inspire anyone who doubts the power of one individual's ability to change his community and better the lives of those around him.
