"Three friends, rescued from the rubble of an earthquake, are at first simply glad to be alive with no major injuries. They soon realize, however, that something much more miraculous happened during the earthquake. All three have been gifted with mysterious powers they neither understand nor can control."

This is the first book I have read by Terri Blackstock and now that I have read it I intend reading more books by Terri.

Three friends gather after work as they are trying to create a Christian group to gain members and be able to share their faith with others.  However as it turns out they are the only 3 people that turn up for the meeting.  They are brain storming as to why no one else turned up and what they could do to encourage others to attend and be able to share the word of God with others.  Next thing the building begins to shake and they find themselves in the middle of an earthquake.

Due to the earthquake all 3 of them find themselves buried in earthquake rubble, injured and requiring medical attention.   Before this is able to happen they need to be rescued  which duly happens and they are taken to hospital.  All three friends receive miraculous healing and and able to walk free from the hospital the next morning.  However once they leave the hospital they suddenly find they have been gifted with a unique talent they have never experienced before.  With the three of them combining their newly acquired talents they are able to go forth and help others while sharing their faith.

Was a very enjoyable read.  A subtle message woven throughout the story as you read.
