We Dance Because We Cannot Fly (2003)

By Guy Chevreau.

The story of Betel told through the testimonies of ‘Betelitos’ from around the world. From the back cover:

“Light has shone in the black holes of humanity. Decades of horrific abuse, multiple suicide attempts, gangster violence, homelessness and drug addiction. Yet, through the power of God’s love, and an association of churches known as Betel, thousands of once desperate lives are not only off the streets, but free of their past and passionate about their future.

We Dance Because We Cannot Fly is a collection of these amazing stories of redemption and transformation.

There is hope, for all of us.”
Available on Amazon.

Rescue Shop Within a Yard of Hell (2000)

By Stewart and Marie Dinnen

Written by veteran WEC  leaders, this first book about Betel’s beginnings takes its title from C.T Studd’s declaration, “Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop, within a yard of hell.” The book tells of the amazing transformation in the lives of drug addicts in post-Christian Spain who were been discarded by society, their families and themselves. From the rescue of one addict, an exciting movement developed that brought many broken people to Christ, ‘ransomed, healed, restored and forgiven’. A companion book by the same authors, ‘Sacking the Frontiers of Hell’, continues the heart warming story.

Available on Amazon.

wish it were trueWish it Were True E.P (2014)

By Neuma

We seem to go through life never fully satisfied with what this world has to offer. No matter what, we are left with the desire for more. We wish that there was a fulfillment to these desires, especially a perfect love that never ends. But what if, instead of merely wishing, we actually came into contact with a being that was able to satisfy us? What if he entered our reality and initiated a relationship with us? In this short project, Neuma wrestles with these questions and argues that not only can we wish, but we can know that it is true. We can meet Him. And once we do, our entire view of the world will is transformed.
