The God Who is Real
Tested and proven through more than 55 years of real life experiences.
by Richard Haverkamp

Humorous and conversational, while at the same time theological and practical, The God Who Is Real poignantly addresses the most compelling question of human history: Does a personal, caring God exist? The author answers this through a series of “stories,” or “episodes,” which, taken together, form an autobiography that testifies to the reality of a sovereign God who desires an intimate, loving relationship with His creation. The Lord’s care and miraculous provision are chronicled throughout the author’s life, from his conversion as a young man, throughout his life as a preacher and missionary, to his return to Canada in 2009. The book is marked by honesty and transparency. Readers witness the spiritual highs of ministry and a close walk with the Saviour, along with the lows of everyday life. A born-again experience does not shelter a believer from illness, heartache, or challenges—a truth gently woven throughout the pages of this manuscript.

“From the very first page, I knew this book would pull me in. Nothing prepares you for the true life experiences that Richard and Marina have faced in their life time. They have learned to lean on God in all circumstances and their faithfulness has seen lives changed, including their own. If you’ve got questions, the answers you are looking for may be right in front of your eyes.” Mrs. Susanne O’Connor. "Office Manager, The Spinal Garage Wellness Centre", Kitchener. “Rarely have I been so impacted by reading a book as I was at the conclusion of God is Real.  Richard and Marina Haverkamp have served God for more than 55 years together, through “plenty and in want”, joy and sorrow, constantly counting only on the Lord to provide for them, their family, and their ministry. If you are wondering if God is “really real”, this very personal account will convince you that He is real indeed!  This is certainly a very encouraging book for anyone desiring to serve the Lord.” Gerrit Blok, Co-founder and past Executive Director of New Life Prison Ministry

Richard and Marina Haverkamp spent many years serving the Lord in Europe, the United States, and Canada. Together with a few co-workers, 24 churches were established in Belgium. After decades of experiencing the Lord intervene in their lives and the lives of others, Richard has been compelled to tell their story. This is his first published book, and it’s the Haverkamps’ prayer that readers will discover the unwavering faithfulness of God throughout the joys and struggles of life. Richard and Marina have three adult daughters, raised on the mission field (without any contracted income). They, (except for one daughter) now live in Elmira, Ontario.
