About the Book

A beautiful island in the South Pacific and a Christian home should be an ideal place for anyone to begin their life’s journey. But instead, Pinati’s childhood memories are filled with physical abuse, especially between the ages of five and ten. He still has a scar from a knife that stuck in his arm; he could not eat regular food for two weeks from a hit on his mouth; and he was beaten with a board in front of the whole school assembly as a second grader. As an adult, he experienced a painful divorce, death of his only son at age 20, death of his wife of 18 years, a drive-by shooting in San Francisco, and a street mob in the Philippines. With a pacemaker, a kidney transplant, eight stents in his heart, and a daily dose of 23 pills, he believes he’s still going because of God’s love and grace. His story is for God’s glory.

About the Author

Pinati Pasi was the fourth of eleven children. His father was a pastor, and his mother was a housewife and a very stern and strict disciplinarian. He was born and grew up in the Samoan Islands, then moved to Hawaii at age 14. After graduating from Farrington High School in 1974, he joined the Navy where he served onboard two aircraft carriers. He got married in 1979 just before he was honorably discharged from the Navy. His higher education included two and a half years in Loma Linda University and Riverside City College, and a year in the California Paramedical and Technical College all in Southern California. Besides a certificate for ambulance transport from San Francisco and a CNA certificate from Columbia Gorge City College in The Dalles, Oregon, he believes his highest education was provided by The School of Hard Knocks.
