Description

La historia de hombres y mujeres que conquistaron el mundo a traves del Espiritu Santo.Como resumir la historia de 520 millones de personas? Como condensar en un libro 112 anos de historia del movimiento pentecostal y carismatico? Como narrar los 100 anos de historia de las Asambleas de Dios en el mundo y los 50 anos de historia en Espana? Dejeme que le cuente una historia: un nino observa unos zapatos desgastados sobre una erosionada plataforma de madera. Al fondo se escuchan algunos himnos; la musica del organo intenta enganar al frio que se cuela por todas partes en la inmensa carpa amarilla. El predicador termina su mensaje y un centenar de personas avanzan hacia el frente, mientras las voces de algunas mujeres siguen entonando viejos himnos de perdon y redencion. El nino tambien se aproxima. Desde su pequenez observa la gran figura del predicador, que le parece un gigante, pero le llaman la atencion los zapatos. Desgastados, pero limpios, esos zapatos tienen muchas cosas que contarle. Suenos y frustraciones, milagros y esperanzas que no llegaron a cumplirse. Cuando el nino levanta la vista ya han pasado treinta y cinco anos; los gigantes se han convertido en hombres, pero el sigue mirando sus zapatos: ellos le indicaran el camino...

In the background he can hear a few hymns; the organ music tries to trick the cold seeping in from all sides of the huge yellow tent. The preacher finishes his message, and a hundred people flock to the front while the voices of a few women keep singing old choruses of pardon and redemption. The boy walks up front as well. From his smallness, he observes the great figure of the preacher, who seems like a giant to him. But the shoes are what capture his attention. Worn-out but clean, those shoes have stories to tell: dreams and frustrations, miracles and disappointed hopes. When the boy looks up, thirty-five years have gone by; the giants have become men, but he keeps studying their shoes. They will show him the way...show more
