This was a really great read. It opened my eyes to the life of a missionary (the ups and downs), the need for missionaries everywhere, and the conviction that anyone can share the message at any time anywhere. This is a must for anyone thinking about being a missionary because it will offer guidance and courage. But I do recommend this to every Christian because sharing the good news is just so important.
This is a wonderful 365 day devotional book! It has essays written by missionaries from across the world compiled by Beth Moore. Each month the essays are organized by topics such as: God's character, God's word, prayer. Each month Beth Moore writes an introduction for the topic. Since it is written by a variety of missionaries, it offers many insights and points of view. I found it to help me be aware of how God is working in and through missionaries around the world. And it helps keep me mission-minded. With that said, I kind of wanted more - to be more into the lives of these missionaries.
For God so loved the world_John 3:16KJV So often we try to contain God by having Him fit into the boundaries we create for Him. In our comfortable homes and churches we sometimes forget that in all areas of the world others are not blessed with the same luxuries. Whether from the jungles of South Africa to Southwest Asia or in an apartment building in France these devotions offer a daily challenge to pray for these missionaries and inspiration to look for ways to support them abroad while also serving our God at home in the United States. Voices Of the Faithful helps one realize that the awesome power and love of God completely covers the universe.
