Excerpt

t eat Chinese food? They won't be able to go to the country and minister in all the little country churches that are so much in need of help--they can't get Western food there! They had better have stayed at home!

What is more, he even came to prefer an ordinary country meal of local food to the best Western dishes that his wife could give him at home! Seeing that, I began to realize a thing that should be a comfort to all young workers who find the food or the living conditions difficult. Over a period of time familiarity not only turns difficulty to ease, but often even removes the "dis" from dislike!

This small but powerful book, along with "The Cost of Discipleship" (by Dietrich Bonhoeffer) and "To China, with Love" (by Hudson Taylor), were the three most important books (besides the Bible) that helped shape my life! Highly recommended to all serious followers of Christ! It only takes about 3 hours to read it through, but your life could be changed!
