Voices of the Faithful --Beth Moore (Review)

Voices of the Faithful

 Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around the World

A 366-day devotional with inspiring stories from the front lines of faith.

"A willingness to go is all they have in common," says Beth Moore, speaking of her friends on the front lines who are spreading the gospel around the world and with whom she collaborated to create this book. This brilliant, 366-day devotional features incredible stories of God's faithfulness in the face of uncertainty and danger, written by hundreds of missionaries worldwide.

With a foreword by International Mission Board president Jerry Rankin and an introduction by Beth, this volume also includes advice on how to hear God's voice, pray for missionaries, and understand the church's and individual's role in missions.

My thoughts: 
God has given our family a burden for China.  Our plans were sidetracked when Malachi was born, but we truly feel that teaching English is a great avenue for us to pursue godly ambition.  That being said, I love a good missionary story.  Unfortunately, I don't have much time to delve into a 300-page book in just a few sittings.  I LOVED the layout of this book.  This book is chock-full of first-hand accounts by missionaries sharing how God is working AROUND THE WORLD.  Clearly, I was partial to those testimonies coming out of Asia, but you can't read through this book and NOT see the hand of God working in big ways. There is now a second book which I would enjoy sitting down and looking through as well.  God is so good!
