I (Amy) was in the process of writing a missionary book when Bradley came for an extended visit. Together, we finished the research and wrote this book. It is now available on Amazon.com (for 99 cents – although the price may vary for those from other countries) and as a part of the adult missionary book set at nph.com.
Africa is often viewed as receiving missionaries, and that is true. Many have come from a great distance and at great personal sacrifice to share the love of Christ. Yet from the earliest days, African Nazarenes have also crossed borders and learned new languages to share the message of Christ with people near and far. This book tells the stories of Africans who have served and continue to serve as messengers of holiness.
We hope you enjoy their stories!
