Turning Mountains into Molehills by Yvonne M. Morgan is the story of how her life drastically changed following a tragedy—Morgan’s son died when he was only nine days old. Morgan understandably struggled to continue after that terrible loss until an opportunity to visit Haiti for mission work was presented to her. Although at first skeptical about whether she was making the right decision, she went on the trip. That experience was to change her life and be the start of many other visits to needy parts of the world. In addition to Haiti, her mission trips included journeys to Russia, Honduras, Kenya, Argentina, Nepal, and Bolivia. Kenya is where she spent the most time, culminating in the building of an orphanage. She was also instrumental in expanding the work of orphanages in Nepal and Myanmar. The book includes more than 20 pages of photos from Morgan’s trips.
Turning Mountains into Molehills is a remarkable book. Few could imagine a woman who was leading a comfortable suburban life in the United States making such drastic changes and doing so much good all over the world. Author Yvonne Morgan clearly has a big heart for her work and the people she ministers to. Her religious faith was not only the impetus for Morgan’s work but it also sustained her when times inevitably were tough. Readers will be saddened by some of the conditions Morgan describes but inspired by her desire to change the world as much as she can. Additionally, although this book is not intended to be a travelogue, readers learn much about the places where she ministered. That makes the book engaging without taking away from Morgan’s purpose. Those interesting in purchasing a copy of this moving book will want to know that 100 percent of sales go to helping orphans through the Orphan Relief Effort charity.
