Item description for THE CALL TO AFRICA by Phyllis Mills...
This is a true story, a saga of faith. Family and friends told the young couple they were crazy to take their little ones to Africa, but they proceeded in faith. Even when the baby became deathly ill, they persevered and entered the ship traveling to Africa. Along the way of life, there were family problems of health, school difficulties, and decision to make. God led the family in paths He wanted them. Many times faith hardly seemed enough but it always was. Two years in South West Africa (Namibia), twelve in Kimberly and the rest of the forty-seven years were in the Johannesburg area. No matter where God led them, God's word was still getting spread, people were reading and coming to His saving grace. The writer and husband Bob now live in Texas still serving God. I was eight when my parents became missionaries to Batang, China/Tibet. We were four children, a boy and three girls, I being the middle girl. My first book, SOME OF GOD'S CHILDREN, is about those faith-challenging five years. Back in America, we adjusted slowly to our new culture. We had done without for so long, rationing meant little to us. At college, I met and married Bob Mills who wanted to be a missionary. He felt called to Africa, but agreed to go to China. I received a call to Africa several years earlier but refused, telling God that there were too many spiders and snakes. China closed its door to missionary work before we finished college. We accepted the call to Africa and spent 47 years taking the 'Light of Christ' to that Dark Continent. I found God's way is best.

Reviews - What do customers think about THE CALL TO AFRICA?
Victory in the Veld Dec 27, 2009
While Africa very much remains the "dark continent", The Call to Africa by Phyllis Mills sheds at least some light on both the land and its people from the perspective of a lady who was led by the Lord to leave her "comfort zone" and serve Him amid snakes, spiders and the ever-swirling winds of unbelief. Born, it seems, to take the Gospel to distant shores, Mrs. Mills offers readers a solid first-hand account of the work she and her husband Bob were involved in for nearly half a century. The book is rich in detail, highly personal, inspiring at times, and if you'll excuse the poor choice of words, colorful, enough so to sufficiently engage the reader from one chapter to the next. So if you can't wait for the 2010 World Cup to shine the spotlight of attention on Africa and especially South Africa, then The Call to Africa may just be the answer to prayer you've been looking for in your quest for enlightenment. It's well worth your time.
