Sent by Hilary Alan
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to follow God’s command to follow Him.? Did you ever sit down and think about what the cost would be to you and your family? Hilary Alan and her husband with their two children experienced just that.
If we are Christians we have an obligation to live a different life. We all have gifts given to us by the Holy Spirit when we fist become Christians. and God has a claim on our lives.
“God is working in your life even if you don’t realize it.” Alan writes.
This story is told in 241 pages following the Alan family from the comfort of the
United States to a Muslim country in Asia for three years. They took Jesus’ invite to “Follow Me” literally
This book interested me and allowed me to see the costs and the thrills of serving God as He speaks through the Bible. It held my attention as Alan writes in an episodic manner about the challenges of going to a new culture and adapting your life style to become part of the mission field you are in. It is not watered down. The disappointments and challenges of serving in another country are detailed . The people she met and daily rubbed shoulders with makes an interesting missions story.
I highly recommend this book for discussion groups in church who are interested in real life stories of missions being done today.
This book was sent to me free from WaterBrook Multinomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions expressed are mine and don’t reflect those of the publisher.
