Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures addresses topics such as obedience, materialism, hospitality, and sensing God's presence in every situation. Its lighthearted tone challenges readers to keep their sense of humor and let it strengthen them in their daily tasks. Moms, missionaries-to-be, and those who support missions will enjoy this inside look at family life on the mission field.
Walk with Suzanne as she finds out, after she has roasted it, that in Togo, Africa they do not clean a birds innards out before selling it. Learn the importance of humor, and learning the language as she and her husband face a chief who suggests swapping wives. Attend a beautifully decorated (with pink toilet paper) Christian wedding that is sweaty, dance-filled, and wonderfully jubilant. Discover just how essential hunger relief projects are when elephants devastate the villagers fields. Also, meet Victoria Cat who didnt catch rodents even when they changed his name to Tiger; learn how to forgive when villagers eat the Crockers pet dog; and rejoice in a miracle when a native pastor, who cannot get antivenin for a viper bite yet survives, thus proving God is stronger than the witch doctor. There are more than 50 of these narratives. And, yes, that pig is in there, being delivered alive via village taxi.
Dont miss reading this book! Pig in a Taxi can be read straight through or bit by bit. It is a fine devotional, but also is an adventure biography packed with a full range of recognizable emotions. It should be a must-read for prospective missionaries; but then, it should also be a must for prospective parents, those thinking of moving from their home ground, and Christians who are learning that other cultures are as valid as ours, as well as anyone who relishes living. Crocker closes with these words: God has promised to guide us and be our counselor. I am choosing to trust him to lead us step by step the rest of the way home (pg. 174). Pig in a Taxi makes a most satisfying text book for learning the reality of Gods promises and guidance. Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com
thehoneybeeAthens, OhioAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Nice DevotionalNovember 7, 2016thehoneybeeAthens, OhioAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a nice little devotional of humorous anecdotes. Each anecdote is 2 pages in length and begins with a Bible verse and ends with a personal introspection and a prayer point for missionaries. The nice thing about a devotional is that each story is independent and does not build upon the previous story, so a person can read this as fast or as slow as they wish. Maybe reading one story in the morning and one in the evening, or whatever. Each humorous tale is related to events that occurred in a missionary's life.
