Are God’s actions visible in the world today?
Does He still do the type of works we see in the Bible—provide supernatural guidance, unexplained timely provision and protection, miraculous answers to simple prayer, and physical healing when the doctors have given up hope?
If yes, then where is He at work?
Standing in the middle of a landfill just over five years ago, Brett Durbin was confronted with a reality that has been described by many as being the closest thing to hell on earth that exists in our post-modern culture. Children and families that have nothing scrounge in the trash dump for a few scraps of metal to pay for their next bowl of rice. But what could be done to help such a forgotten society?
Witness is the compelling true story of Brett’s experience as he obeyed the call to reach out to the least, the lost, and the forgotten through the formation of Trash Mountain Project, the organization he founded. It is the story of an amazing God, whose actions are very much visible in the lives of the organization and the people they co-labor with and serve around the world.
Brett Durbin is the founder of Trash Mountain Project, located in Topeka, Kansas. He holds a Masters in Criminal Justice (Washburn University) and a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership (Asbury Theological Seminary). Brett, his wife Jaelle, and their five children live in Topeka.
Dr. Jim Congdon (DMin, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) has now served as lead pastor of Topeka Bible Church for over thirty years and chairs the board of Jews for Jesus. Jim and his wife, Melody, have four children and five grandchildren.
