Publisher's Description

Stories about missions,
by volunteers who have been there

Every year, more than 100,000 people serve in the United Methodist Volunteers In Mission programs. Walter and Betty Whitehurst, longtime leaders in the program, have gathered the thoughts and comments of several dozen long-term individual volunteers and presented them in this compelling book.

Truly a kaleidoscope of the Volunteers-in-Mission movement as told by the volunteers themselves. It offers a candid view of the joys, as well as the challenges and perils, of volunteers’ ministries.
   -H. Hasbrouck Hughes, Jr., Bishop (Retired), The United Methodist Church

From hundreds of stories, touching people and places around the world, we learn something about who God is and how we are called to live lives that “become the Gospel.” This is a volume to be savored!
   -Harriett Jane Olson, Deputy General Secretary, Women’s Division/United Methodist Women

Over the years, Walt and Betty Whitehurst have positively influenced and supported the lives of so many people. What a treasure they have given us to read and enjoy for ourselves!
   -Jeanie Blankenbaker, Assistant General Secretary, United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, Mission Volunteers (Retired)
