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!

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!
