Awesome Links

For Princess' AWANA tonight, she was supposed to have read a book about a missionary. We had Jungle Pilot, which is the story of Nate Saint. There was a movie, End of the Spear, that we just recently watched at our church, about his life, and the book just paints an awesome picture of how his faith in Christ led him to Ecuador. The movie didn't go into that much detail, leading up to where the movie started. If you can get your hands on this book, I highly recommend it and the movie!!

While reading the book today, with the kids (we almost finished the whole thing!!), it said how Nate's sister used to read him stories, as a boy, called 50 missionaries every child should know about. It listed a few of the names, and John Paton was one. Princess asked if we wer related in any way!! So, I thought it would be neat if we could find the book.

Me and my intenet prowess, I was able to find on e-book of it!! The first link below is the book they were talking about and I also found this other book (the second link) with some other stories. I will be printing these out and put them into a binder to keep on hand. How inspiring to be able to read these stories of people that allowed God to have their lives, wholly!!

50 missionary heroes every boy and girl should know.

40 Missionary stories
