About this title

Synopsis:

The little house in Chile, South America, where Margaret Register lives with her husband, Joe, and their two small children, Christy and Timmy, protects them from the freezing rain. But nothing can protect them from an envious co-worker determined to destroy their ministry. An earthquake later, Margaret and her family transfer to the hot, humid country of Paraguay where there are no traffic lights or stop signs. She sees chicken feet in soup and eats orange, tongue-like strips from spiny, green seafood. Through pain, through tears, through anger and through disillusionment, Margaret realizes that she does not want to be a "plastic saint"-one who is brittle and hollow and stuck in neutral. Transparent with her pain, Margaret leads us through laughter and tears, through victories, disappointments, and miracles, along her journey to meet the challenge of real life on the mission field. Why in the world would such a creative person as Margaret Register dedicate her life to spreading the Gospel so far from home? There has to be a story behind that! There is one, and it's contained in this marvelous book you now hold in your hands. You're about to get blessed-so, get ready! -Dan Betzer (Pastor / Byline Television Host / Revivaltime Radio Speaker / Dan & Louie Puppet Duo) Born in the Midwest into a Methodist pastor's home, Margaret Register grew up knowing about God and His provision. A missionary for 38 years, Margaret ministered in Chile, Paraguay, and on television programs that continue, today, to reach 200 countries on 14 satellites. In 2005, Margaret and Joe retired from foreign missions and now make their home in Florida where they continue to minister in both English and Spanish.
