Item description for Like a Mustard Seed: Mennonites in Paraguay by Edgar Stoesz & Alfred Neufeld...
Overview Like a Mustard Seed tells the inspiring story of the Russian, Canadian, and Mexican Mennonites who, beginning in 1927, emigrated to Paraguay and made a new homeland out of the jungle wilderness. In the succeeding decades, Mennonite communities in Paraguay have established schools, clinics, hospitals, churches, and farms. Edgar Stoesz, who for four decades has held administrative posts with Mennonite Central Committee and other organizations serving in Paraguay, recounts this inspiring story. With faith on the Lord and by the sweat of their brow, these communities of Mennonites in Paraguay have blossomed from humble beginnings, like a mustard seed.
