This delightful book charts the missionary work of Robert and Margaret Muir as they sought to serve the Lord in Congo and Zambia. As Bert Cargill states in the foreword, ‘At a time when many people taking early retirement would be looking for an easier option, Robert Muir effectively took on a new and more demanding task’.
From the start of their work in Congo in 1995 the book deals with their flight from that country because of a military coup. The reality of their experiences at this time is difficult to imagine as they negotiated road blocks and were ambushed and robbed. However, what shines through the whole book is their love for the Lord and the people they were trying to reach with the gospel.
