Heart Cry by Arlita Winston
Does God’s heart cry out for cannibals? For that matter, does God’s heart cry for suicide bombers or terrorists? Is the Christian message of God’s love as valid today as it was in the past, or is it old and ineffective news? Arlita Winston lived in the jungles of Sumatra, the child of missionaries David and Helen Morken. Decades later, she looks back and tells how her parents, aunt and uncle braved wild panthers and pythons, head-hunters, hardship and even death to bring God’s love to the native people there. Heart-Cry is that story, but it is more than a missionary biography. In the remarkable story of the life of this one family and those they touch is a living picture of the way God pursues all people, of whatever race or creed. He pursues those who love Him and those who do not; He pursues the missionaries and the cannibals alike; and His faithfulness and divine preparation and intervention can be seen in the lives of each. In God’s workings in their lives, the author finds timeless truths about God and faith that apply today as much as they did then.

And for 2021!

Those Who Passed by Eleanor Turnbull
In Those Who Passed By, veteran missionary Eleanor Turnbull traces the story of Haiti’s development by what happens along the Kenscoff Road and those who travel its bumps and curves. Throughout her nearly 70 years working in development and rural medical care, Eleanor met countless men and women who were just “passing by.” She soon learned that many of them had been “sent” for a greater purpose. Some came for research, others to find themselves; a wise few sought to widen their worldview. Each of them left an indelible mark on Haiti and her people. These are their stories.
