"Sent"

Sent by Hilary Alan
What happens when an average upper-class American family responds to God's call to forsake everything and follow Him to the other side of the world? They are forever wrecked by God and see the world in a vastly different way. I very much enjoyed following this family as they find out through experience what it means to truly "go and make disciples". From the moment they heard the call, to the moment they left the missions field, this family desired to serve the Lord whatever the cost. Even their young teen children were excited for this mission and actively sought God's will for their lives. It's no surprise that was one of my favorite things in the story! Missions and young people finding their identity in God in one book? Basically my dream story!

This book isn't meant to be a how-to on missions, or a report of the ministry work they're doing. Instead, it's an honest look at the trials of missions work, in addition to the blessings that come from it, as discovered by one family. I found myself laughing and crying at various points while reading their story. A great glimpse into the life, not just ministry, of missionary families.

Recommended, 4/5 Stars.
