"God had an only Son and He was a missionary." With these words, David Livingstone confirmed that he, too, would spend his life telling people in far-off lands about the love of God. This explorer, doctor, author, and missionary longed to see "the smoke of a thousand villages," because huddled around African tribal fires were people who might never hear the story of God's love unless missionaries obeyed God's call to serve Him. David Livingstone is one of 22 men and women whose exciting adventures will be enjoyed by the whole family. As you read each of these wonderful stories aloud during family times or on your own, you will see how you, too, can reach out to your world through deeds and prayer to tell others the good news about Jesus and His love.

MannyGeorgiaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good for small groupsMarch 19, 2012MannyGeorgiaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I bought this book with the intention of using it with my small group of 12-15 year old girls. It provides summaries of the lives of missionaries that have already died that had a big impact. I like that after the story it has a challenging thought about reaching others for christ and also a key point to pray about in your own personal life. With my group of girls i have found that some of the vocabulary is a bit hard for them so i find myself explaining alot. Over all its good for the purpose that i had intended. If you want some general knowledge about missionaries or something for a small group this works.
