About this item

Have you ever wanted to travel the world? Perhaps you'd like to visit far away countries and discover all about the people who live there? What if instead, you'd like to have adventures closer to home? Well this book is for you!

Meet some very adventurous missionaries and learn about the countries they worked in. Find out what it's like to be in the middle of the Mau Mau rebellion in Africa or how orphanages in India present difficulties you would never imagine. Find out how difficult it can be talking to people about Jesus in London or how looking after children in China is completely different, and exhausting!

Gladys Aylward, Jim Elliot, Amy Carmichael, William Carey, Lottie Moon, and others all knew what it was like to work in a foreign country. Charles Spurgeon and Chief White Feather were missionaries in their native lands - but they had troubles too.

Here is danger, adventure and excitement - all through working for God. Here are stories about people from the beginning of modern-day missions up to the present day. It's all part of being in the Christian family - a family that is spreading round the whole world at an amazing rate.

At the end of the book are some check-up questions to help you remember the stories.
