New Book By Our Partner Barbara Lunow
Our missionary partner Barbara Lunow just published a new book detailing the adventures of her family in their first term on the field in Indonesia in the early 60′s. GBC has partnered with the Lunow family from the early days of their ministry (check out the exciting results of their years of service in our Missions Directory on the left side, Day 25!) Now you can read for yourself how a young family went to the very ends of the earth under extremely difficult conditions and how God used it! Available on Amazon.com in Kindle or paperback! You’ll love it!
