I have never felt so connected to a devotional book than with this one. Not only is this a yearly devotional, but it’s a yearly devotional written by missionaries serving all over the world. Each day is a new verse and a short story written by a missionary from their “neck of the woods”. The stories come from ALL over the world and give a glimpse into the area in which they serve. Its a year focus on missions, the passion of my heart.
Now you understand why I relate so easily to the stories and devotionals. There’s something that comes with the connection of other missionaries on the field. Though we live in different areas of the world, and our stories vary with region, we seem to have SO many experiences in common (as all my other missionary friends can attest to).
Another wonderful addition to this devotional is the forward each month, written by Beth Moore (and if you know me well, you know I love her). She has a flavor of writing that I adore!
To all my friends living on the field, I KNOW you will love this book! The stories will make you laugh and cry, and believe me when I say that we can relate to each one of them. I am dedicating this review to all of you that I have worked with in various countries, and all of you who I have gotten to know over time, who are also diligently serving to the ends of the world….
In hopes that you will find a way to add this wonderful devotional to your collections.
