This is a set of testimonies with a difference. Central are the stories of London City Missionaries. Their experiences before conversion were varied and include: alcohol and drug abuse, sexual abuse, racial issues, poverty, violence, involvement in cults such as Rastafarianism, Jehovah Witnesses and the occult. Alongside these are stories of people who have come to faith through the work of LCM, interspersed with some shorter accounts of people who have been challenged with the gospel but who have not yet accepted it. Together, they illustrate the work of the Mission and their care for those whom they meet.
