How to cultivate a heart for missions through exciting stories, knowing the hand of God in Asia
By Roy Robertson
A veteran missionary with over 50 years of service, Roy Robertson issues a challenge to the next generation to develop a heart for mission through telling the story of the great movement of God that occurred in Asia following World War II through the influence of five missionary heroes known as the Powerhouse Five. Having worked closely with these men, this book is Roy's firsthand testimony of this little known era of Christian mission.
