We hope that by sharing their story, you can experience what it’s like when undeserved mercy confronts undeniable evil, when kindness upends condemnation, and when heaven engages hell. This is what the authors experienced at the hands of the Amish community and we are hopeful its healing power can reach even further to you.

Join us on Saturday, April 20th at 6:30 pm to hear Tim & Megan’s firsthand experience of this incredible story.

“On Sunday, June 21, 2020, 18-year-old Linda Stoltzfoos of Bird-in-Hand, PA was kidnapped and later murdered by Justo Smoker. Justo is Tim’s brother-in-law and Megan’s uncle. Beechdale Road is our attempt to share our story of grief, anger, and pain but also unexplainable grace, kindness, and mercy at the hands of the Amish community. For over a year following Linda’s disappearance, our family had various encounters with members of the Amish community. In this book, we reveal what it was like for us to encounter kindness when condemnation would have been understandable. From meeting Linda’s parents to having a birthday party with Linda’s closest friends to being invited into Linda’s home for her wake, we walk through what it was like to be confronted and changed by the disarming and shocking power of grace, kindness, and mercy.”

We are for the one.

For the one God, for His one Church, and for the one that is lost.

The impossibly hard, yet beautiful story, of mercy and forgiveness, told through this book, Beechdale Road, is a tool you can use to share the love of the one God and His one Church to the one lost.
