Tested and tried with more than any Christian could be expected to endure, these servants refused to allow Satan to send them packing back to America. American Missionaries Jean Phillips and her husband Gene lived through some of the most harrowing moments in African history of the last half century--through unthinkable hardships that would have caused most people to abandon their cause. From the Rhodesian civil war to bush country living, to an abduction that almost took their lives, the Phillipses learned the dependability of God's rescue again and again. When all else seemed to fail them, God came through -- sparing their lives, answering their prayers, making a way through the darkest nights, meeting their special family needs, and helping them sing praises despite one frightening traumatic episode after another. Walk with this inspiring couple through those harrowing years when they were literally refined by the African fires blazing around them. Foreword by International Mission Board President Jerry Rankin This is what others are saying about this book: "Anxiety, uncertainty, fear, emptiness, Repressed in the day. Expressed in the night. Where is their help? Where is their hope? Walk with these pilgrims. Try the truths of which they testify. And you, too, will prove Him who is The Way." -- Randy Sprinkle, International Prayer Strategy Director, International Mission Board "Walk in the path of this modern-day Priscilla anbd Aquilla as they live out their lives on mission with God in Africa." -- David Crutchley, former Africa missionary, now seminary leader "Through tears, laughter, joy and thanksgiving, Jean Phillips shares a journey of an astounding faith. God's omnipresence and power are seen in the lives of this one family." --Evelyn Blount, South Carolina Woman's Mission Union Jean Phillips was appointed a Southern Baptist career missionary in 1956 and served in Rhodesia (later renamed Zimbabwe) for 40 years. After retirement, she and husband Gene returned to Lesotho, Africa, as mission volunteers. Today, they make their home in South Carolina but frequently travel back to Africa to visit and minister.
