My People, the Amish

The True Story of an Amish Father and Son

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In My People, the Amish, Joe Keim paints a detailed picture of life behind the bonnets and buggies. More than a biography, this is an honest look at heart-warming traditions that mingle with the deep-rooted legalism of the Amish people.

Born, raised and baptized in an Old Order Amish community, from childhood Joe Keim was taught that if he didn’t follow the twenty-two-page book of Amish ordinances, there was no way he could get to heaven. What started as a path of rebellion led Joe and his wife Esther to a caring group of Englisher Christians who would love them like family and show them the way to God. 

Nine months after their traditional Amish wedding, Joe and Esther left family and friends forever to live openly for Christ, and endured shunning and excommunication with bold faith. Since then, the Lord has brought many former Amish people to Joe and Esther for help. Because of their passion for the Amish people and with the support of fellow believers, they have brought biblical truth to thousands of Amish through the ministry they founded in 1999, Mission to Amish People (MAP).

About the Author
Joe Keim was born and raised in Ashland, Ohio. He married Esther Keim in 1986 and they left the Old Order Amish community in 1987. They have two grown children, Jonathan and Rachel. In 2001, Joe left his job as a tool and die maker for full-time ministry. The Keims travel all over the US, speaking in churches, as well as to hospital staff, to law enforcement, and at colleges, helping people understand how to communicate with the Amish.

Through personal witness, home Bible studies, home prayer meetings, the Bible Club, The Amish Voice, and the Audio Ministry, the Keims want to see every Amish person hear the clear message of salvation.  MAP offers counseling and protection to those who are victims of sexual, mental, and physical abuse. The ministry also provides help with needs such as getting a GED, obtaining a birth certificate, and finding a job. Through the Bible Club alone, they have seen more than 2,500 Amish make commitments for Christ.

Very interesting read and I loved how he incorporated bible verses into his writing. This shows that his ideas are not just his own but backed by God’s infallible word. Thanks for writing this book brother!

Words cannot not express the gratitude I felt for a book like this.
The warmth, the depth, the outreach, the heart, the truth and on and on. God’s hand was truly on the author when writing this book. God’s blessings. May many hearts be touched and decisions made for Jesus Christ as life as a result.
