The Missioner tells the story of a young woman, Addie, who leaves her home in the Midwest to become a missionary in Africa. Along the way, she must confront the challenges of living in a new and unfamiliar country, and of ministering to a population that is often hostile and unyielding. Addie's faith is tested, but she never wavers in her commitment to God, and ultimately she is able to bring about change in the lives of the people she's been called to serve.; 8vo; 312 pages.
