This is a story of the lost and found. It is no mere coincidence that you are holding this inspiring historical treasure in your hands. How the missing manuscript came to be found is a miracle in itself. At last...the story that 20 years ago was nearly lost forever can now be told.

All of his life, Ross Sype had dreamed about the adventure of serving God in some faraway place. In 1918 came the call that he had been longing for. That year Ross and his wife, Gertrude, left small-town Iowa and headed off to Central America and the West Indies as pioneer missionaries.

Into the dark jungles where sunlight could not reach, Ross brought the light of the gospel to the native people. In the face of malaria, superstition, and political unrest, he and Gertrude shared the message of God in isolated mountain villages and on remote islands. Many people received the truth gladly. Others hissed death threats.

Like a handcrafted tapestry of many colors and textures, the authors weave a story richly descriptive about the exotic sights, sounds, history, culture, and natural wonders of the countries and villages the Sypes served so faithfully. Their joys as well as the uncertainties, loneliness, sorrows, and dangers of working in uncharted and often hostile territory fill the pages of this astonishing read.

Prepare to be inspired by the legacy of an intrepid Adventist church family. And prepare to be moved by the power of the One who promises you the courage to fulfill your own call to serve.
