Tales of the Endless Mountains: A True Story of Midwest City Slickers Learning Love and Patience in a Mountain Hamlet

Lunghezza: 222 pagine3 ore

Descrizione

A young professional family from the Midwest follows God's call to minister in a poverty pocket in northern Appalachia, where their expectations run headlong into the reality of mountain culture. Quirky characters, outhouses, horning parties, cow riding, quilting bees, maple sugarin'they all become part of the fascinating daily life of the Farleys as they work to rebuild a struggling church in a quaint hamlet of Riggs, Pennsylvania.

Nothing thrills me more than stories of God working in big ways in small places. This is why Tales of the Endless Mountains is such a treasure! Every page contains riveting adventure, humor, and wisdom, all proclaiming God's amazing grace and power. It almost reads like a fictional account. (How could real life in a country church be so dramatic?!) Woven into the tales you will find boat-loads of encouragement, challenges to enlarge your faith, and superb ministry insightsin fact, more (and better!) advice than many books written expressly for that purpose, which qualifies it for a ministry primer. And, I am pleased that it all happened during the Farleys' years of exemplary service with RHMA! - Dr. Ron Klassen, Executive Director, Rural Home Missionary Association
