Every single word of this book was worth reading. This isn¿t your typical book recalling someone¿s first mission trip. The stories are powerful and the transformation in Dan¿s heart is incredible, but this book offers so much more. It offers each one of us the chance to really pray about how God is calling us to serve and then to move into action on that calling. My favorite part of the book is the PRAXIS at the end of each chapter. Taking his own personal experiences, Dan challenges us to have similar experiences ¿ right in our own backyards. Because what Dan learned from his trip to Africa is that there are people in need everywhere. And that the small things do matter. The small things add up. If we each did one small thing every day of our lives ¿ well, think about how huge the sum would be! Sure, this book is about one man¿s mission trip to Africa. But it¿s also about how you and I can become poverty-fighters. Maybe some of us will be called to go to a foreign place. Others of us might be called to take on huge projects and devote lots of time to organizations needing help. And still others of us might be called to go hang out with the least of these and just listen to their stories. With God, the possibilities are endless ¿ will you take time to listen to God¿s call?
