THE MISSIONARY by William Carmichael and David Lambert
This was a fast-paced story that never slowed down right up to the very end. I liked how it began with, "Life turns on small choices". Missionary, David Eller and his wife Christie are working in Venezuela, trying to help the homeless children in the midst of a very currupt country. David makes a wrong choice, thinking he was doing something good, and it doesn't turn out good for anyone. There are many characters in this story and you are never quite sure who the "good guys" really are. It was full of mystery, intrigue, and danger. This was a story of someone who had good intentions, but made some very bad choices. It was a very believable story and showed the devastation a missionary on a foreign field can have when he steps outside of the purpose for why he is there; not to fight the corruption of the country but to reach the heart of the people. A very interesting and well done story!
