Some brief overview of this book

Often just a step from death... A preemie with seizures, given up for dead and almost buried. A head injury with extreme risk of infection and almost no medical help.

A brash teenager running afoul of Baby Doc's brutal police. A taxi driver ensnared by Miami mafia. Time after time the Lord saved Maxeau.

Why? Maxeau wasn't good in any way. Whiny, difficult, and disobedien Often just a step from death...

A preemie with seizures, given up for dead and almost buried. A head injury with extreme risk of infection and almost no medical help. A brash teenager running afoul of Baby Doc's brutal police.

A taxi driver ensnared by Miami mafia. Time after time the Lord saved Maxeau. Why?

Maxeau wasn't good in any way. Whiny, difficult, and disobedient, he harassed animals, terrorized children who dared not retaliate, vandalized neighbor's property. As he grew older, he became worse.

It would only have been justice for the Lord to allow death to end his life. But the Lord loved this wild crazy child who was hurting people. The Lord had a plan for Maxeau.

Known as Maxeau to his family, the author lives in the quiet town of Belleville, Pennsylvania, with his wife Martha and four children. He emigrated from Haiti when he was twenty. Four years later he met the Lord and surrendered his life to God.

The Lord led Maxeau through difficult experiences and gave him a church home and a Christian wife. Maxeau has told his story uncounted times. Now, thanks to the encouragement of friends, it is in print.

Maxeau's purpose is to lift the Lord and His mercy and compassion and love. His greatest desire for the book is that it will point the reader to the Lord. He wants the reader to see that what God did for Maxeau, He wants to do for the reader.

A Resident Alien in Search of a Home has three or four story lines running through it – an immigrant adjusting to life in a strange country – looking for a way to earn a decent living – searching for God – wanting a wife and a home of his own. Such stories have been told many times. What makes this story come alive is Maxeau's raw honesty about his confused aspirations, his mistakes, disappointments, fears and despair.

He doesn't avoid telling us about all the fruitless rabbit trails he followed, or make himself sound like a noble victim of circumstances. It is real life. I found it a gripping story, though almost too painful to follow at times.

I believe many other readers will find it equally gripping. —Bob Goodnough, writer and blogger I like the way Maxeau brought out his difficulties with farming. We tend to think anyone can farm, or anyone can clean house, but we need to realize that what is easy for us can be hard for someone else, and what is hard for us is easy for them.

—Dena Unruh, editor of Hearth and Home Magazine It is truly a testimony of God's grace and mercy to a seeking soul! —Gospel Publisher's proofreading committee A Mennonite autobiography is not my first choice of reading material. I only agreed to read this because the editor is my friend.

I was pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed this book and even talked about it to my husband over meals. My favorite parts are the first impressions of the U.S. and the comparisons between it and Haiti, the author's love for his country and hometown, and, of course, the way he found a church home.

—Vila Gingerich, writer and teacher I was totally engrossed by the book. To me the highlights are the insight to growing up Haitian, the immigrant experience in America, the conversion, and finding a life's companion. —JonLuke Toews, author of Across the Mountains A Resident Alien in Search of a Home is great.

I can't wait to read it to my students.
