Saving Levi Short Video

"I put down Lisa Misraje's book Saving Levi ready to cheer for the spirit of a woman who refused to recognize international, cultural, or linguistic boundaries in her quest for justice on behalf of a severely burned little Chinese boy. Bentley adopted him as one of her own, displaying a grace and compassion one rarely finds today."
Seoul Bureau Chief, Los Angeles Times, and award-winning journalist
"Saving Levi is an inspiring and uplifting book about how the life of one little Chinese boy was saved. Lisa Bentley tells her own story with brutal honesty, about the difficult road that she and little Levi have walked together. It is a book about the wonders and the tragedies of modern China, but most of all about the power of prayer—and persistence—and how God’s faithfulness transformed and sustained a single human life and the family who came to love him. An extraordinary tale of compassion and hope, and of God’s love at work amid the tumultuous change of modern China. "

"I would not care to know anyone with a heart cold enough to remain unmoved by this gripping story. Lisa Misraje's complete determination to save Levi is an absolute marvel that demonstrates the power of love and resolute faith."

"Lisa stands as a humble example of what can happen when a man or woman actually lives out the truth that God cares for orphans."
Best-selling Author of Choose Joy
"While visiting China, I was fortunate enough to have witnessed the extraordinary heartfelt works of Lisa's orphanage. I was completely moved the their absolute unselfishness and unwavering commitment and passion for bettering the lives of so many special-needs orphans. The visit was a highlight of our trip and touched many of our Platinum Partners. Since then we have been blessed to support their work, an exceptional organization that is impacting the lives of so many vulnerable people in China."

"My family has walked the floors of the Bentley’s orphanage and held the babies... We know this great family, love them, and love Christ more because of them. I think you will as well."
