From one old woman's prayer a young girl was brought to faith, a missionary was sent to Africa, and then a church was born from among the people of The Central African Republic. Margaret Nicholl Laird and other missionaries from the west came with the message of Jesus Christ-but it was the men and women saved from cannibalism, the young boys who herded goats and carted water, who took the Good News to the villages and homesteads of Africa. 156 pages, softcover.
