A Time For Every Purpose Under Heaven
I recently read A Time For Every Purpose Under Heaven by Chris Loehmer Kincaid. I enjoy reading books about missionaries and missions trips, so this book piqued my interested. This book follows the author's missions trip to Africa with her daughter, Val, and a group of many other people. I like how she divided the book into chapters based off the Scriptures in Ecclesiastes - I enjoyed how her trip paralleled these verses. I was glad the book included quite a few pictures - I always like to see the people and places I'm reading about, especially in a book like this. I could relate to her feelings of "How could God use me?" and feeling like she needed to constantly be DOING something while on her trip to Africa, and worrying that she wasn't accomplishing anything. I have the same type of personality, so it definitely hit home for me. Parts of this book made me laugh and parts brought me to tears. The plight of the African people touched my heart and really made me appreciate my life here in the US. It stirred my heart for the mission field and opened my mind to taking a short term missions trip myself. I highly recommend this book. It will give you a heart for missions as well as the African people. I received a copy of this book from BookCrash in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
