This bright collection of mission adventures from around the world is a wonderful compilation for children who love to read or for use in any Sunday school program designed for grades 4 to 6. It is also a perfect resource for children sermons throughout the year. Filled with action-packed stories of people from many different cultures, this book is a wonderful educational tool. One way to help people know Christ is through story-telling and these true-to-life tales have been used in many churches as role models for young people since these reports from many lands describe how people have found inner peace--with themselves and with their world neighbors--through encounters with Christ and Christ's followers.
