Since John recently read and reviewed this book here, I won't go into too much detail. I've always enjoyed missionary biographies. These books challenge and encourage my own walk with Christ, remind me of the global call of the great commission (Mt. 28:19-20), and make me examine my life to see whether or not I believe what God says I should believe about life, death, eternity, and the worth of Jesus. Most of these books detail the exploits of missionaries from long ago, but in this book David Sitton tells his story of God's faithfulness in our time in areas like Papua New Guinea and Mexico. As such, the challenge to missions seems even more real and tangible.
I appreciate David's life and desire to show that Jesus is worth any sacrifice. I also appreciate David's desire to help raise up and train young men and women to forsake everything to follow Jesus to the ends of the earth.
Read the book and be challenged and encouraged!
If you have never considered the possibility that God loves you and may have a wonderful plan for your death, perhaps you should (pg. 201).
