Made for the Journey
In her first year as a missionary to a small group of native women in the Ecuadorian jungle, Elisabeth Elliot faced physical and spiritual trials. In Made for the Journey, Elliot captures the mysteries and stark realities surrounding the colorful and primitive world in which she ministered. More than just a recounting of her early days, this is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to authentic Christian obedience to God.
My thoughts: I have enjoyed many of Elisabeth Elliot's other books, so I was thrilled to pick this one up. I enjoy her style of writing, since she seems like she was a very practical person. This is a wonderful book of her experiences during her first year on the mission field. This is a wonderful book that addresses things like culture shock, discouragement on the mission field, and God's provision through it all. I highly recommend this book for those in all walks of life, but can imagine it would especially be a must for those looking to serve on the mission field.
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
