Walter and Patsy Oda
"HEART’S DESIRE” is the fairy tale that is real, the love story that is out of this world!
The Late Dr. Bill Bright (Founder/President of Campus Crusade for Christ) endorsed Patsy Oda’s book:
“Patsy Oda’s fascinating story will touch your heart. ‘Heart’s Desire’ will bless and encourage every reader. I thank God for Patsy’s devotion to Him and willingness to share her life with others.”
“Heart’s Desire” is the true story of how God brought Walter and Patsy Oda were married in 1974 and have faithfully served the Lord together in their church and other Christian activities, including a weekly Bible study in their home for 12 years. In 1988, Tyndale published “Heart’s Desire”, eventually it was available in seven languages and subsequently republished by WinePress and endorsed by the late Dr. Bill Bright. In 2013, "Heart's Desire" was republished by Xulon Press (Patsy's book website: www.heartsdesirebook.com) Patsy and Walter have spoken at various Christian functions and have been interviewed on TV and radio. Patsy has written booklets that are in English as well as Japanese and are continuing to be used for evangelism. You may see examples of booklets below. Patsy and Walter are also on the Board of “A Woman’s Special Touch” radio ministry headed by Norma Bonds (who does the lovely art work for Patsy’s booklets.) We believe the book, booklets and finally the film will all be part of a marketing plan for “Heart’s Desire”. To order booklets: www.awomansspecialtouch.com Stay tuned!
