Amazon Adventures: Tales from the Jungle
By Larry Garman

Remote. Isolated. Threatening. Intriguing. In the Amazon jungle overlooking the Kusu and Marañon Rivers, Larry and Addie Garman, young missionaries in the early sixties, made their home.

Walk through the jungle, navigate the raging Marañon, slip quietly along a remote trail, and celebrate God’s amazing grace and one couple’s total surrender to His will.

God does extraordinary things with ordinary people–folks like you and me–when they are fully surrendered to Him. God has done an extraordinary thing through the Garmans! Your life will never be quite the same after reading these stories.

Messengers of Holiness: Stories of African Missionaries
By Amy Crofford and Brad Crofford

Africa Regional Director Filimao Chambo says, “The proverb, ‘African porridge must be drunk from an African calabash,’ tells us that in order for the church to have a bright future, young men and women of Africa need to be fully committed to the Great Commission.”

African Nazarenes have crossed borders and learned new languages to share the message of Christ with people near and far.

This book reminds us of Africans who were and are messengers of holiness in Africa and beyond and encourages us to dream with those whom God calls to missions now and for the future.



A Missions Mosaic: The Changing Landscape in Canada
By Donna M. Wilson

While Canada has frequently sent Nazarene missionaries abroad, the country’s open immigration policy has created an influx of new opportunities for ministry at home.

According to 2011 demographic statistics, international immigrants born outside Canada make up almost 50 percent of the population.

As Canada becomes more diverse, the result is a beautiful mosaic across the land. This mosaic offers new disciple-making opportunities for the Church of the Nazarene in Canada, both near and far.
