Look Inside the Book

In this sequel to At the Edge of the Village, Lisa Leidenfrost describes life in her village in Côte d' Ivoire. Although there are exciting stories about the local witch doctor and escaping from a civil war, life as a missionary is often surprisingly normal. Family life need not be crowded out by frenetic translation schedules and fundraising furloughs. Whether it’s the humorous cultural differences in hospitality or courtship, or the kids’ adventures with driver ants, snakes, bees, a bushbaby, or a parrot, From the Village to the Ends of the Earth shows what it is like to raise a family while building the kingdom of God in Africa.

From the Book:

"When God calls a family to live overseas in a village, it also means bringing their children along too. Stories of our family are scattered throughout this book on purpose, because family life is an integral part of the “real work.” Raising our children for Christ means pouring into them daily, providing a family life that is both fun and filled with the grace and love of Christ in action. When children grow up to follow the Lord with their whole heart, they are a powerful witness for Christ." -From the book

Joy filled book

I just finished reading this delightful book. As a missionary kid myself, I saw my childhood in Lisa’s stories of her children. She and her husband got it right: your children are your first and most important mission field! Thank you for writing this book! It was fun to see how similar my experiences were, even though I grew up on the other side of the world. And that hot, soft air that envelops you when you step off the plane? That’s the best feeling!
