Stifling heat, cultural blunders, laundry, tropical sicknesses, separation from children, leeches, Christians who trade in opium, noisy neighbors, slow or dangerous transport… yes, opportunities for fussing about when you are a missionary in North Thailand.
Verda Peet, who with her husband Larry has spent nearly thirty years in Thailand, admits that she has not found this book easy to write. “I am daring myself to ask for prayer, I who do so little praying myself,” she says. “I am a fellow learner in prayer.”
Her book is sometimes painfully honest, often very funny, and always realistic. Because she has opened her heart to show not only the frustrations but the spiritual lessons, which came from them, this book will prove relevant to many whose frustrations may be different, but who serve the same Lord.
