About the Book

For many years, various supporters and friends have been telling us that we should write down the stories we told them, but we have never shared all the stories and experiences. Many people have asked us questions during meetings and after meetings in churches or in their homes. When we answered those questions, there was often much surprise. Then some said again, “Why don’t you write a book?” Our answer has always been “How will we find the time to write? The most important thing for us now is to get the translation of the Bible, in the Trio language, finished!” But then a good number of them answered, “It is very important for other people to learn about your missionary life. Who else but you can share these events with generations to come? People have no idea about what you have experienced and what life is like on a mission field like yours!”

About the Author

About the Authors: “I met Fred in a Youth for Christ Camp in August 1958. I was the cook at that camp and he was a camper. I was from the north and he was a 'southerner'. A different accent!! But there in that camp, when I discovered that Fred was interested in going to the mission field, I realized that my desire to serve the Lord, which had started many years before, could become a reality. That is, if I could meet Fred’s 'requirements'! He had three requirements for any prospective wife: being born again, being a nurse, and having black hair. I was born again, I was a teacher, rather than a nurse, and I had blond hair. Look at him now: what a compromiser! BUT: I did become an RN and studied midwifery, since I could not find a job in teaching. No black hair, though!" -Trudy
