Author Solutions, LLC, a Penguin Random House company and the world’s leading provider of supported self-publishing services, is featuring Alec Zacaroli, author of the WestBow Press title “Obey,“ through its Real Authors, Real Impact campaign.

Alec, who spent most of his childhood in South Africa, and his wife Amy cofounded 25:40—a ministry dedicated to serving poor, vulnerable children in rural southern Africa—in 2003. The Zacorolis said they were inspired to start 25:40—named for the biblical verse Matthew 25:40—by Alec’s connection to South Africa and Amy’s experience of being adopted as a child.
The Zacorolis hope their work and “Obey” will inspire others to help those less fortunate than themselves.

“I started to write ‘Obey’ while on a mission in South Africa, after reflecting on what it truly meant to believe that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life,” Alec commented. “In His own amazing way, through the arc of life and experience, He commanded me to love some of the poorest, most neglected children on our planet in the same way I love Him.”

Amy, reflecting upon the couple’s work, said, “All we want to do is open people’s eyes around here to what kind of things people go through in South Africa, and most of sub-Saharan Africa.”
