"I opened up this cellar to let it air out. The next evening I picked up a trunk and stepped down into the cellar with my bare feet because there was loose sand in the hole. As I did so I felt something sting my heel. I jumped out and looked at my heel. There were two drops of blood about half an inch apart. I took a light and looked into the cellar. There was a small but poisonous adder which had bitten me in the heel. I killed it with a bush knife and put it in a tin can on the table so if I died, the people would know what it was that killed me."
"I knelt down and told the Lord that I was not afraid to die because I knew He had saved me. It seemed heaven opened, and I could see the beautiful city. I wanted to go, but a little voice whispered, 'What will become of your children who are expecting you to meet them at the railroad station?' I said, 'Yes, Lord, for my children's sake, heal me of this snakebite.' It seemed a pressure came on my right side, and I vomited blood. Then I was sure I would not die."
He lived to see his children later on, after riding his bicycle to reach them. When he should have been dead, he received anti-venom treatment. It was a beautiful miracle from God. The book goes on to recount the outcome of the five children. They went on to follow in the footsteps of their faithful parents; serving the Lord in foreign soil. I highly recommend this book to all those interested in missionary work.
My only criticism is that when reading the Kindle version on a Kindle Paperwhite, the photos were mostly too small to get more than a general idea of what they showed.
