Books we recommend

Jodi and knew we were called to missions before we were engaged to be married. God did not open the door for us till 26 years into our married life. The door opened for us starting with “Mission Next” (link down on the right). Prior to that we read several books and learned about missionaries. We learned of struggles and of victories. Ultimately we were encouraged to see how God was always with them.

Here is a short list of books we recommend:
