Just finished Brian Heasley’s unputdownable ‘Gatecrashing’. Wow, I laughed, I cried, I pondered and was challenged as I read this amazing account of Brian and Tracy Heasley’s God-sized adventure in Ibiza. Not being remotely interested or involved in the “clubbing” scene, I wondered whether this book would resonate with me .. it certainly did – it was a breath of fresh air and an eye opener as Brian draws us into the night scenes of Ibiza and vividly describes his experiences of loving the lost. I was enthralled to read the story of their vision, their calling, the reality of the highs and lows, the struggles and the triumphs and the day to day reality of living the adventure that God called them to, and the love and grace of God that they shared with everyone in their path including the lost, the hurting and the marginalised. Please do buy the book and read the story of how this amazing couple backed by much prayer and support made a huge difference in Ibiza. Apart from being impacted by their story, I loved the practical step by step nuggets of wisdom and truth on establishing a prayer pattern, prayer walking, street prayer etc. I love the way Brian describes how God can be found and recognised through the beauty of his creation and the importance of balancing time in the community with times of being still in the presence of God. The pace of the book is brilliant – Secret Histories was truly inspiring – the part we can play in other people’s histories through prayer or direct/indirect actions, and the consequences that we may never be aware of this side of heaven! ‘Jayne’s Story’ at the end had me weeping in a taxi with goose bumps. There’s so much in this immensely readable book to encourage, inspire and equip, and you come away feeling as if you have had a personal encounter with the author – which I find is true of all of Muddy Pearl’s books – and indeed a fresh encounter with God! Highly recommended.
