More Than Conquerors
TEACH Services, Inc., 2007 - 217 páginas
Compelled by a religious revival that was sweeping across America, Samuel Munson and his young bride set sail from New England in 1833, bound for the Islands of Indonesia. Samuel and Abigail prayerfully made the decision to dedicate their lives to preaching the gospel among the natives of Sumatra.
While slogging their way through dense jungle growth, seeking to open a new mission station in a forbidden frontier, among warring tribes, they were ambushed by a fierce band of Batak warriors. A deadly shower of spears and arrows left the missionaries dying in a pool of blood on the jungle floor. Little did Samuel realize how the testimony of his martyrdom would impact the future of the Batak tribe! Today they are the largest Christian tribe in Indonesia and have been responsible for the training of countless missionaries.
More Than Conquerors is the story of multi-generations of the Munson family who dedicated their lives to taking the gospel to the people of South East Asia. The author, George Munson, inspired by his father's decision, spent twenty-five years following in his fore-fathers' footsteps.
As you read this book your heart will be warmed as to how the tragedy of martyrdom was turned into triumphal march of early Christendom, as it brought the light of the gospel to those living in darkness.
