Are God’s actions
visible in the world today?
Does He still do the type of works we see in the
Bible—provide supernatural guidance, unexplained timely provision and
protection, miraculous answers to simple prayer, and physical healing when the
doctors have given up hope?
If yes, then where is
He at work?
Standing in the middle of a landfill just over five years
ago, Brett Durbin was confronted with a reality that has been described by many
as being the closest thing to hell on earth that exists in our post-modern
culture. Children and families that have nothing scrounge in the trash dump for
a few scraps of metal to pay for their next bowl of rice. But what could be
done to help such a forgotten society? 
Witness is the compelling true story of Brett’s experience
as he obeyed the call to reach out to the least, the lost, and the forgotten
through the formation of Trash Mountain Project, the organization he founded.
It is the story of an amazing God, whose actions are very much visible in the
lives of the organization and the people they co-labor with and serve around
the world.

Brett Durbin is the founder of Trash Mountain Project,
located in Topeka, Kansas. He holds a Masters in Criminal Justice (Washburn
University) and a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership (Asbury Theological
Seminary). Brett, his wife Jaelle, and their five children live in Topeka.
 Dr. Jim Congdon (DMin, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)
has now served as lead pastor of Topeka Bible Church for over thirty years and
chairs the board of Jews for Jesus. Jim and his wife, Melody, have four
children and five grandchildren.
 Trash Mountain Project Mission Statement: To develop
Christ-centered environments for children and families living in trash dump
communities worldwide.
