theTarget

The Target takes snippets and highlighted events from the Howe family's lives. Following a time line, it illustrates the challenges, trials and tragedies they faced, including the death of their two sons. This book gives a commentary of how the earthly and heavenly realms affect each other.Peter however, weaves Christian fiction into the different aspects of his own true personal journey.

Their faith developed and grew throughout all the tragedies they experienced, and blossomed into the life they now live serving God and ministering to others.
