The main purpose of the book is to tell the stories of particular individuals, events and experiences. These include experiences of tragedy and triumph, sorrow and joy, provision on a huge scale and provision in some small but precious way; also many, many answers to prayer. They tell of human weakness and God’s power. They show ordinary men and women struggling to tell the story of Jesus across cultures and the grace of God in using stumbling words and flawed lives to bring people to faith. They show what love for God and love for East Asia’s peoples can achieve in the life-creating hands of the Holy Spirit.
