Baton Rouge, LA Author Publishes True Story of Hope and Faith

August 03, 2022 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment News
Angels in Afghanistan, a new book by Joseph R. Perez Jr., has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

During his first deployment to Afghanistan, Joseph Perez saw two angels above a friend who was about to go on a combat patrol. Moments later, his friend was struck by an Improvised Explosive Device. This was the first of several times Perez would see angels in the spiritual realm. Though he shares these experiences and his life's journey, this book is not about him; rather, it is a message of hope and faith.

Perez's story shows that it's okay to be a Christian no matter the circumstances. He always said if he got kicked out of the military for being open about his faith, then at least he would leave for the right reasons. It turns out it was faith and following God that got him through it.
