More than a story, this account takes us into the life and lifestyle of a North American family who lived for Jesus Christ is an international community in a foreign country. Struggles with assimilating a new and very different culture, failures to communicate with servants and neighbors, questions of conflicting values, difficulties of explaining the gospel, the issue of what church to join - these blend together with problems we all face in realizing God's presence in our lives.
This is the story of how a loving heavenly Father worked in the life of one person, one couple, one family -- in a culture foreign to their own - so tht He could work through them.
