Tich and Joan Smith found themselves at rock bottom when grace showed up, brought them together, and inspired them to break out of their comfort zones into the realm of God's kingdom. As a result, these two unlikely middle-class South Africans moved past the racial prejudices of the apartheid era and followed God's call to the love the poorest of the poor.
The result was Lungisisa Indlela Village (LIV), the legendary residential facility that rescues orphaned and vulnerable children, restores their lives, and raises them up to be young leaders in South Africa. Through LIV, the Smiths have witnessed the transforming power of loving others as Christ loves the church - this is the story of thousands of changed lives.
One couple's story of hope and healing among the poor.
