Product Description

When Amy's family moves to Taiwan to begin missionary work, she is determined to be a good missionary. But the neighbor girls laugh at her, and Sunday services at the Chinese church become an ordeal.

    I recently found a book called Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World, written by Deb Allen Brammer. When I heard it was about a girl my age on the mission field I decided to read it.

    It all starts with a girl named Amy, who is very exited to be going to Taiwan as a missionary. When she gets there she tries making friends with her Chinese neighbors, but it is not working out. Then she meets Jessica, the most popular girl in her school. She soon realizes Jessica is trying to get her to avoid a specific Chinese girl named Mickey. Amy struggles with the fear of what her school friends might think of her if she chooses Mickey over Jessica. When Amy tries to make friends with both Jessica and Mickey, Jessica turns her back on her. How does it end? You'll have to read the book!

    In this book, Amy learns about trusting God and choosing the right friends. I loved this book because being in a missionary family myself, it helps me remember to trust God. When I first heard we would be leaving everything I knew and moving to a new country, it was kind of hard for me to trust God at that moment.

    If you like reading books that teach you spiritual lessons, you would love Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World. Once you read this book, you'll want to read it again and again.

    I love to read. So when my 9 year old granddaughter asked me to read her latest book. I did. After all, I came home from BlueRidge last spring with three of Vonda Skinner Skelton's books expecting my grandchildren to fall in love with them.

    I told granddaughter I couldn't read it until I got back from my trip. She and her family left for Haiti and Husband and I left for a tour "Following Paul's Footsteps" ~~that is a story for another day.

    Granddaughter's, other grandpa is a missionary to China. He goes once a year and visits and prays for the pastors of many home churches. He has many fascinating stories.

    And the title of this book was "Peanut Butter Friends in a Chop Suey World" by Deb Brammer.

    I am glad I read it.

    Whether we travel across the sea to witness for our Lord, or just go to the corner market, we start out all pumped up. We are going to win hearts for God. But we are often not prepared to learn. And yes, we have to first learn the needs of others before we try to give them the answers.

    In my opinion this book is not just for children.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Deb Brammer
Located in: New Zealand
Submitted: January 04, 2002

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a graduate of Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. My husband and I have been serving with Baptist Mid-Missions since 1978. We served sixteen years in Taiwan. We left Taiwan in 1996. We came to New Zealand in 1998. My husband is the pastor of a mission church in Invercargill, New Zealand. We have two daughters who are no longer living at home.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I wanted to give a realistic view of life on a modern mission field. Missions today happens in very progressive countries as well as primitive ones. Many missionaries minister in English, though many learn a variety of foreign languages. Missionary kids get their education in many different ways. Each country is different. Each missionary kid faces his own challenges. Yet each one can find a way to serve the Lord.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope that young readers will catch the excitement of serving the Lord. I hope that they will be challenged to consider whether or not the Lord is calling them into missions. While they are young I hope that they will find ways to serve the Lord in whatever situation they are in.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My father was a pastor. My parents loved the ministry and felt privileged to serve the Lord. They gave me a desire to serve the Lord, too. My journalism teacher in college, Mr. Clarence Townsend, gave me the courage to begin writing, and I have had this ministry ever since that time.
