Abstract:

"Offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of men and women who are called to witness to the Gospel in different parts of the world. Not all of them are missionaries in the traditional sense, but each has a mission. Maureen Edwards tells their stories, painting a vivid picture of the varied, and often difficult, situations in which they live and work. Each is a story of faith, courage, and determination, in which cultural differences are bridged, and the love of Christ is shared in unexpected ways. ... At the end of the book, biblical reflections and discussion starters are provided for those who want to explore some of the issues involved in becoming or supporting Christian missionaries today."--Back.
