25 Life Changing Stories from Africa
In the heart of Africa, a young missionary kid's life is changed forever. Impacted by the lessons he learned while hunting birds, leaving home, or chasing girls, Paul Brown shares some unforgettable stories that could change your life.
How do missionary kids in a boarding school relate to each other and what do they do as they spend most of their young lives away from home? Grandpa Still Remembers is Paul recalling events during his growing up years at Rethy Academy in the Belgian Congo. A little boy fascinated with birds and animals observes closely and learns about life as he tries to fit in. Seeing some boys run away or react to rejection make deep impressions on him. He eventually discovers a mysterious attraction to girls, whom he had previously ignored or avoided. In each story chapter, illustrated by his daughter and himself, there is something to learn of the basics of life and a relationship with God.
