"One of our missionaries came across a tribe who asked him if he was English. When he told them he was, they brought him to a man who recounted the most astonishing story. Several years before, when he was a teenager, this man had a vivid dream. In the dream God told him, 'Wait for the English; they will tell you about Me.' Ever since the people of the village had questioned any white person who crossed their path, asking if he was English." Alfred Buxton
Imagine the joy of Buxton, a British missionary to Africa in the late 1800's, when he met this tribe in a remote African village.
Are you facing an "impossible" situation?
Take a moment today and remember that we serve a God who is able to speak to a tribe in the remotest parts of Africa and tell them the exact nationality of the person who will tell them about His Son.
Buxton was C.T. Studd's son-in-law

While I recommend this book in the YWAM Christian Heroes series, I do not recommend all of the books in this series.
