Africa was their home. Could they ever go back?
Physical weakness coupled with civil unrest in the Ivory Coast had extended a six-month furlough to several years and threatened to derail the Leidenfrosts’ plans to return to their beloved Africa and continue mission work with the Bakwé people. But now they were finally going home to their village…or so they thought.
“On top of all this, a subtle grief over the loss of Africa continued to grip my heart. In my dismal state, I felt the clouds part and God’s presence come down to touch His child. God saw the pain, the loneliness, the need, and was telling me that I was not forgotten. It was too easy to focus on my troubles. I needed to remember that His love is stronger, more real, than the pain I was suffering at that moment. Was I going to focus on His love, or on the pain?”
Join Lisa Leidenfrost as she walks through trial after trial and learns to keep her eyes on God, whom she finds by her side through it all. This book is especially recommended for anyone experiencing a long-term health challenge or other hardship with an uncertain outcome.
Lisa Leidenfrost is a missionary wife who spent more than two decades raising her four children in Ivory Coast alongside her husband Csaba, a Wycliffe Bible translator for the Bakwé people. They now live in northern Idaho, where Csaba continues his translation work remotely and Lisa is involved in women’s ministry at their local church. This is Lisa’s third book on living and working with the Bakwé. Read the rest of their story in At the Edge of the Village and From the Village to the Ends of the Earth.
