i'm really not like Hudson Taylor, David Livingstone, or William Carey. The tales of those everyone is inspiring, yet in addition they make me query, “Am i actually more than enough to be a missionary? simply because I don’t reflect on myself super-spiritual like those missionary heroes appear to be.” Ordinary Missionary introduces international missions throughout the tale of a typical kin dealing with usual questions about their very own insecurities and inadequacies. Step into the footwear of 3 authors who mix their concepts to place a face, a sense, and an individual to modern missions. subscribe to Jay, husband and father, as he prepares to minister one of the Builsa humans in Ghana, West Africa. detect Pam, spouse and mom, as she addresses the private matters of the family members. persist with Emily, oldest daughter, within the struggles and joys of being a missionary kid.

This tale isn't really a successful story of missionary heroes. the true heroes appear in not going areas after they are least anticipated. Our steps are usual, however the trip is past impressive. those actual tales will encourage you to belief your individual lifestyles within the fingers of our outstanding God.

“Stories and relationship—what a wonderful option to examine! As you benefit from the Moon relations tales, not just will they develop into expensive associates, yet additionally, you will achieve perception into very important classes in useful missiology. this can be a desirable creation to missions, equipped at the tales of a typical kinfolk on undertaking with God. it is going to open the eyes of the missionary beginner and hot the guts of the cross-cultural veteran.”

Ordinary Missionary is an inspiring account filled with knowledge and useful insights from a kin dwelling and ministering in a unique tradition . . . every one bankruptcy supplies the reader perception into the reviews of the Moon family members dwelling in Ghana. Drawn out of those reviews are ideas for dwelling and dealing in a distinct tradition. i might hugely suggest it to a person going right into a cross-cultural situation.”
—Ruby Mikulencak, Former Director, SIM Ghana

Ordinary Missionary has thoroughly replaced the best way i believe approximately missions. I’m so grateful to the Moons for his or her vulnerability and transparency in sharing how God used them in the middle of their uncertainties. They use tales to be able to proportion biblical fact, which makes it not just effortless to learn, yet effortless to determine God at paintings of their situations. As an ‘ordinary’ man myself, I savour their relational method of venture paintings, and suggest this booklet to any who are looking to the way to larger serve in a project context.”
