Joshua’s Mission is a new standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.
Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop’s granddaughter, plans on joining their team.
What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?
Joshua’s Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.

Two different worlds connect when a hurricane hits the coastline of Texas. Four youth and an older lady all from an Amish community in Oklahoma make a mission trip to help rebuild homes in the small area where the hurricane destroyed so much. Charlie, an elderly man and Alice, a close friend, raising her two grandchildren are among those the Amish met and become friends with. Alice lost her home and it was one of those being rebuilt.
Lives were changed as they all worked together. Joshua got involved because he wanted to help his younger brother, Alton, who kept getting in trouble. Even on this trip he seemed to stray. After an incident where a young boy gets lost, Alton seems to take it personally. But does he really change as Joshua has prayed that he will?
I loved all the characters and really felt like I knew them and a little of what they were going through. Our city went through a devastating tornado a few years ago and it destroyed many lives, homes and businesses. So I can fully understand the emotions and trauma felt by those effected by the hurricane.
Also a sweet romance developed in Texas that had been ignored in the Oklahoma community. I really enjoy a novel where lives are changed and the characters become more aware of God's love and grace. I've read several of Vannetta Chapman's books, but this one is my favorite by far.
I received this book from Netgalley for my honest opinion, which I have given.
