Accounts of faith, courage and determination against what so often seem to be impossible odds yet my main memory of the book is not of tragedies, but of laughter, endurance and hope.' - Rob Parsons OBE, Chairman, Care for the Family So many acts of faith and courage go unreported. As Jean and Brian Gibson travel through Malawi and Kenya, they meet Christians who have overcome extraordinary challenges - including female circumcision, polygamy, child abuse and HIV - to share Christ and to model Christian discipleship. The future for subSaharan Africa lies, to a remarkable degree, in the hands of the national churches. Here are vivid illustrations of this redemptive work. 'Filled with the faith, hope and love of Christ.' - Revd Donald Ker, Secretary of Conference, Methodist Church in Ireland 'Jean has a remarkable gift of painting pictures in words. You will feel as though you are there.' -Right Revd Harold Millar, Bishop of Down and Dromore 'I loved reading this book.' - Tim Magowan, Northern Ireland Director, Tearfund 'You will begin to understand why the grassroots church is not just growing but exploding in this, the Global South.' -Very Revd Dr Trevor W.J. Morrow, Presbyterian Church in Ireland
