Still Climbing Apr 12, 2008
What a wonderful story of a "normal couple" who have been called to a wonderful, and exciting way of life. Paul and Dorothy have shown in these pages their faithfulness to follow God no matter what direction that may be. These two, along with their children, were involved in Bible translation for many years in Mexico and found that God had more than a translation work for them. They document their story through a diary style and give daily thoughts to everyday happenings. It was a joy to see that life as a follower of God can be significant. If you are interested in Bible translation, photography or just about any form of cross cultural ministry this book can help you understand what day-to-day life is like in a small Indian village. Reading this book and then getting to know this couple I must say they are still climbing moutains for the Lord. They are wiser and a bit slower but they are still following God. With a great number of Christian workers falling into sin that removes them from ministry and disqualifies them to share what God has done, it was a breath of fresh air to sit down with these two and see that they are finishing the race with grace. Blessings on you as you join them in the pages of their journey!
