This book is a collection of letters missionaries do not write—and are not expected to write. As Christians we expect missionaries to write about thrilling opportunities and amazing conversions—and yet leave unsaid their own personal feelings and struggles.
The letters included here will help you see missionaries as real people who face real problems, frustrations, and challenges…all while serving cross-culturally. Start reading and then start praying more effectively for these men and women serving the Lord.
Fred is a graduate of Emmaus Bible College and author of the book Blessings All Mine with 10,000 Besides! Fred and Jenny make their home in Darlington, SC, and have three grown sons and nine grandchildren.
Here’s What People Are Saying!
“This book demonstrates Fred and Jenny’s great passion for God and His work across the world . . . My prayer is that these pages may help people to get more involved with missionaries and God’s great global program.”
