Product Description

When a friend invites Steve Norwood on a mission trip to Honduras, he's initially skeptical, viewing the trip as little more than an opportunity to dutifully hand out Christmas gift boxes to children. But when he takes a life-changing step of faith, though reluctantly, God opens his eyes to a people-and another world-in desperate need of his love and God's grace.

Follow Steve's spiritual metamorphosis and his day-to-day adventures-from his delivery of toys and rice to the poorest in Central America to his poignant, often poetic observations about what's important in life amid simple coffee growers, campesinos, and fellow missionaries in the highest mountain villages. Steve's unexpected encounter with the poverty, love, and faith of the Honduran people provides the stunning answer to the ageless question that has haunted his journey since he left the States. Why should I go?

Publisher's Description

An Unforgettable Trip beyond Tinker Toys and ToothpasteWhen a friend invites Steve Norwood on a mission trip to Honduras, he's initially skeptical, viewing the trip as little more than an opportunity to dutifully hand out Christmas gift boxes to children. But when he takes a life-changing step of faith, though reluctantly, God opens his eyes to a people-and another world-in desperate need of his love and God's grace.Follow Steve's spiritual metamorphosis and his day-to-day adventures-from his delivery of toys and rice to the poorest in Central America to his poignant, often poetic observations about what's important in life amid simple coffee growers, campesinos, and fellow missionaries in the highest mountain villages. Steve's unexpected encounter with the poverty, love, and faith of the Honduran people provides the stunning answer to the ageless question that has haunted his journey since he left the States. Why should I go?Plus, don't miss Steve's practical survival tips, a must-have for Third World travelers.I feel like I have just been plunked into a great epic movie. The descriptions are gorgeously tangible. I love this story because so many of us have contributed to the Christmas shoe box campaigns. It's really cool to see a mission trip from this side-before you leave-and then compare it to what happens after you get there. As one who has given a shoe box or two, I am intrigued about how they are given and received. What a great concept for a book - Heidi Rafferty, freelance journalist and writer, Lexington, KentuckyHaving walked in the shoes of a reluctant missionary myself, I find this story very familiar as Steve Norwood recounts his experiences one day at a time as a new missionary in a Third World country. As the story unfolds, I feel as though I am part of his team, experiencing the highs and lows, the hardships, the discomforts, the adventure, and mostly the joy of learning what the Lord is revealing and teaching the person willing to go out unto the nations in Jesus' name. I find the book loaded with details and advice on the do's and don'ts of a beginner missionary, but the underlying theme of the subtle transformation going on internally in the heart of the author is a beautiful thread woven throughout the book.- Cathy Cantelli, Director of Sponsorship, Mama Tara Miskito Orphanage, Puerto Lempira, Honduras
