Every year we get missions books for people to read or listen to, as a way to connect with missions from various places around the world. We might not hear about these works of God around the world if it weren’t for these.

Africa O Africa by Louise Robinson Chapman, Edited by Chuck and Doris Gailey 

A story of incredible resilience and passionate faith in a country not her own, Louise Robinson Chapman’s Africa, O Africa is a reminder that God calls and sends people who are willing to say ‘Yes’ to His will. This updated edition, by Chuck and Doris Gailey, retired missionaries to Africa, brings the reader the voice of Dr. Chapman, and picks up the story since the book was first released in 1945.

 Maps_Beyond_Geography by Stéphane Tibi 

Maps are about more than finding your way through geographical obstacles and terrains. StudyMaps is a new way of looking at both faith and scripture, and of engaging and strengthening the memory to prompt us to evangelism, discipleship, and maturity.

Eyewitness
Seeing from within an Oppressive Society
by Gusztinné Tulipán Mária
Gusztinné Tulipán Mária was born to Christian parents in Hungary at a time in that country’s history when Christ followers were being persecuted under Communist rule. By the 1990’s, the culture had begun to change in monumental ways. Maria was an eyewitness to great events. As she reflects on her years serving as an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, Mária says this about her homeland: “I do like the complexity of the ugly and the good together…and discovering the touch of God’s hand through it all.”
