Joshua's Mission

GIVEAWAY

CHAPMAN, VANNETTA
JOSHUA'S MISSION

Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the Gulf Coast of Texas after a hurricane has ravaged the area. He takes his younger brother, Alton, with him because the last thing Alton needs is another brush with the law. Joshua is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop's granddaughter, also plans on joining their team.

What will he find when he arrives in Texas? Certainly, Englischers and other Plain people, who  provide fresh perspective on life as the Amish volunteers help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from Gotte? A possible healing of his relationship with Alton?

Joshua's Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the most desperate situations.

My Review:

The kind of story that leaves you feeling totally changed. Simple truths are earth shattering in their clarity as Chapman explores the emotional journey of three characters -- two Amish, Joshua and Becca, and Englischer, Charlie. Profound and gentle, funny and anxiety-riddled, the author digs deep and delivers an exceptional testimony of God's grace in various stages of life. From Joshua's impossible attempts to control his brother to Becca's insecurities to Charlie's valiant efforts to rebuild after the ravages of a hurricane. I lost myself in their stories, marveled at the way their destinies linked together and shaped their futures. Real life, tenuous love and the hope that can only come from a Father above.
