But God had others plans, calling him to share the good news of Christ with violent gang members in New York City. Forty-five years later that young pastor still oversees Teen Challenge, the ministry that grew out of that calling.

Excerpt


Harold Schofield, a brilliant Oxford doctor who had laboured as a missionary in China for many years, was on his knees praying, 'Lord, give me missionaries from British Universities to help in China.'

The day he died, D. E. Hoste applied to Hudson Taylor for mission work in the China Inland Mission (Now Overseas Missionary Fellowship). Schofield's prayer was answered as seven Cambridge students volunteered to leave behind cozy lives of wealth and privilege to serve God in whatever way they were led. These seven inspired thousands of others to think seriously of missionary service. Included among them was C.T. Studd, captain of England and the finest cricketer of his day---if he could give all that up, then so could anyone!

The story of these seven are an inspiration that God can take people and use them in incredible ways---if they are willing to serve. As Pollock says in his book, 'Theirs is the story of ordinary men, and thus may be repeated.' Will it be repeated in your life?

John Pollock, an award-winning biographer, is acclaimed as one of Britain's leading historical writers. A prestigious annual biography prize has recently been named after him in the U.S.A.

Excerpt


Reona Peterson Joly and Evey Muggleton Heckman never dreamed of the adventure and danger that lay before them as they attended a short-term missions school in Switzerland. Then, as the two young women sought God, they began to sense a burden for the mysterious, isolated nation of Albania - a nation unlike any other.

In the 1970s Albania's leaders boasted that theirs was the only completely atheistic nation in the world. Closed to almost all outsiders, Albania particularly wanted no contact with Christians. Preaching the gospel in this communist country was punishable by death.

Willing participants in God's plan, yet unsure of how He would lift their burden, Reona and Evey took the first small steps of faith. Through a miraculous set of events, the two young believers were drawn into the danger and intrigue of being God's undercover agents in a nation that officially despised Him.
