MISSIONARY VENTURES: WATCH GOD WORK by J. Daniel Rupp
Hoffmantown member, Daniel Rupp, has written a book that does more than just relate his missionary experiences in Colombia, South America. In Dan’s own words, “Whether serving among throngs of people in Colombian cities, meeting small groups in mountain villages, or driving alone over the remote Colombian mountains, I always marveled at the ways I could see God working. Our lives have been enriched by the profound spiritual lessons God taught us as we served among the delightful people to whom he sent my wife Linda and me and our three boys.” You’ll enjoy this engaging story as Dan recounts their many adventures as they partnered with God and the spiritual lessons they learned along the way.
