“Could God use me like He used Hudson Taylor, Amy Carmichael or Jim Elliot? Can my life count for God like Mary Slessor’s or William Carey’s lives? Have I even heard of George Liele, Darlene Deibler Rose, or James O. Fraser?”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
M. R. Conrad has served in pastoral ministry since 2003 and in urban Asia since 2011 in church planting and leadership training. He has earned a Master of Arts in Bible Exposition, a Master of Divinity, and a Doctor of Pastoral Ministry. He, his wife, and their four children squeeze into a 700 square-foot apartment where he seizes rare moments of quiet to write amidst homeschooling, a cacophony of musical instruments, and the steady stream of visitors they so enjoy having in their home.
“Here is a book I would love to put into the hands of young adults in my church so that they see that men and women who have left their mark on the mission field were like us in every way, except in their devotion to the God who called them. We need to get rid of our lackluster Christianity in order to fulfill our individual callings, too. This book might be a brief 31-day journey, but M. R. Conrad has packed it with spiritual dynamite. Read it prayerfully. It might change your life—forever!”
—Conrad Mbewe, pastor of Kabwata Baptist Church and Founding Chancellor of the African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia
“This book should come with a warning: ‘Danger, you will forever be hooked on missionary biographies.’ This 31-day venture into the lives of missionaries will inspire, convict, and motivate you to greater heights of devotion and commitment to the Great Commission.”
—Paul Seger, General Director of Biblical Ministries Worldwide
“In a simple yet rich way, M. R. Conrad has done a fabulous job of sharing the past in order to stir us about the future. I have no doubt that juniors all the way to senior adults will benefit from this book. Be ready to be uplifted, and be ready to wipe tears as you read of God’s faithfulness.”
—Matt Herbster, former director of The Wilds Camp and current missionary in Asia
