Voices of the Faithful Book 2 Book Review

From the Publisher:
A new year's worth of inspiring stories from the front lines of faith.
"A willingness to go is all they have in common," says Beth Moore and Kim P. Davis, speaking of their friends on the front lines who are spreading the gospel around the world and with whom they collaborated to create this book. This second book of 366 daily devotionals features stories of God's faithfulness, written by hundreds of missionaries worldwide.
From stirring miracles to heroic adventures, this second volume highlights those who daily go to the outer limits of spiritual devotion.
A follow-up to the first book which has now sold 300,000 copies.
My Review:
This is one of those books - you are supposed to read one day at a time but I can't.  Ever since I was a little girl - missionary stories were and are the best! 
Missionaries have a goal - to tell others about Jesus.  Pretty simple?  Not in this book...time after time - you will read how they felt one way and God led them in completely different direction.  (I just love when God is in control and humans are not!)

I fell in love with this book.  It will stay in my permanent library.  This book is an encouragement to other believers in Christ.  It is one not written in vain - it is truly fulfilling the great commission!
The book is divided into months.  Each month has a certain theme.  One of my favorites is September, "Lessons from the Young".  Learning from the mouth of babes - is a true reality in our household as well in many missionaries' lives.
 I will be reading some of the stories to my children - some they might not be ready for or comprehend, quite yet.
Something else I truly appreciate - is all royalties for the Voices of the Faithful series support the work on the International Mission Board.  
Blessings to you!  You are loved!
