9781845505394: With Two Hands: True Stories of God at work in Ethiopia (Hidden Heroes)

Why would a crippled old man wait by the side of the road every day for twenty years? Why would a slave and a witch doctor walk for three days to find a man called Jesus? Why would a lame man purposely walk to a tribe where he knew he could be killed? Sixteen captivating true episodes from the ministry of missionary Dick McLellan in Ethiopia, as well as many national missionaries, show the power of God in the midst of darkness. One by one the people declared, "With this hand I renounce the devil and all his works! With this hand I embrace my Savior Jesus Christ! All I am and all I have! Two hands!" First in the Hidden Heroes series of true missionary stories for children.

Inspirational stories for preteen (ages 9-12) and suitable for read-alouds for younger children. Evangelical Protestant Christian missionaries take the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who then take it to their own people. Biographical true accounts bring the miraculous work of the gospel to life through personal testimonies of historical figures.

About the Author:

Even though Rebecca's prime reading as a child and teen consisted of mysteries and romance, her mother continued to thrust biographies into her hands. For this she has been immensely grateful, because biographies of great Christians have helped shape her life.Rebecca also always loved to write, even though she left many stories unfinished.  This fate nearly befell her first book, With Daring Faith: A Biography of Amy Carmichael. If it hadn't been for a persistent friend and co-worker, With Daring Faith, which eventually won the C.S. Lewis gold medal for Outstanding Christian Juvenile Literature, might have sat unfinished in a drawer. Instead, it was the first of what Rebecca hopes will be many books that will bring glory to God through the lives of ordinary Christians who serve an Extraordinary God.

Her first three biographies ( With Daring Faith: A Biography of Amy Carmichael; George Mueller: A Father to the Fatherless; and Fanny Crosby: Queen of Gospel Songs) were published by JourneyForth books. Now Rebecca is working with Christian Focus Publications in the development of the Hidden Heroes series of true missionary story books designed for family read-alouds. The first three in the series are With Two Hands: Stories of God at Work in Ethiopia; The Good News Must Go Out: Stories of God at Work in the Central African Republic; and Witness Men: True Stories of God at Work in Papua, Indonesia.
