Publishers Description I find I'm beginning to forget many of the wonderful details of my life in Tecozautla, and I think it's time to write some things down before I lose them completely. At the same time, I'm a little hesitant. Why do I want to do this? I don't want it to be for my own glory, but to relate the glorious things God did so other people will worship Him. I don't think He did all these things just for me, but to let other people know what God can do. Ps 78:4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done. Carole Landis has been a missionary in Mexico for more than 50 years. In 1962 she received her degree in dentistry from the National University in Mexico City. After that she was involved in rural evangelism, using dentistry as a tool, for 14 years. In 1975 she married missionary Mark Landis, who at that time was also working under CAM International. At the present time the Landises work under Fellowship International Mission.

A Dying Breed of Missionaries Sep 13, 2009
I loved this book--a real page-turner. There are lots of young missionaries today serving in Europe and in very civilized countries. But there are not too many left who will go/have gone to a missionary life where one sacrifices convenient, urban living for rugged conditions in order to serve the Lord and win lost, pagan hearts to Jesus Christ. In reading Mrs. Landis' accounts of her life as a young missionary and dentist in the village of Tecozautla, Mexico, along with the Mexican girl with whom she served, one praises the Lord for the marvelous ways He worked in the hearts of suspicious, sometimes hostile villagers and peasants. One thrills to the way God answered their prayers if the need was for wisdom, or protection, or courage in dealing with unfriendly people as well as seemingly impossible situations. While TECOZAUTLA MEMORIES is a very exciting and enjoyable read, sometimes I was moved to tears. Most of the time tears of praise because of how the Lord worked in such unexpected but very obvious, mind boggling ways. But sometimes because of a truly sad scenario in the lives of the precious people with whom Mrs. Landis served. In the labors of missionaries, there are low points as well as glowing, positive victories. I highly recommend this book. Many folks today have little or no knowlege of what missionary life was like, especially in more rugged, semi-primitive conditions starting in the early '50's and extending to around the mid-70's. It is very reader friendly and not one boring page! You will be RICHLY blessed.
