I love this book and gave it five stars. I knew the author briefly in Minneapolis at Bethany Fellowship, and I followed their ministry in Viet Nam and in California for years. I guess I lost track of Joyce and Oliver when they went to Texas. The book was gripping and held my attention until the end, which came all too soon. I am amazed that Joyce could tell her story in one small book, when it is taking me at least 5 volumes and maybe 6 or even 7. Would you say that I am long-winded?

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this autobiography. I was particulalry intrigued by the vivid descriptions of life, the people and the culture in Vietnam. I was also greatly encouraged as I followed the lives of Joyce and her husband Oliver, in the many ways in which God was faithful to His promise to be with those who obey Him in making disciples. Life was far from easy, yet they, because of their unconditional surrender to the Lord and because of His faithfulness saw scores of lives transformed by the power of the gospel. It is well worth reading!

I recommend this book highly. Part devotional, part humor, part adventure/suspense/'challenge and all practical to the reader's life and circumstances. While reading, I was so enthusiastic that my husband began reading it - our bookmarks in separate places. Good gift book.

I was captivated by the detail of the stories and the deep, personal and unshakeable faith the Trebilcos have in God in the face of personal tragedy and loss. Men and women of this character and self-sacrificing perseverance are not often found in this 'Me-Generation'. This is a great missionary biography, that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you relive the inside stories of missionaries reaching out to the oppressed in the midst of the Vietnam War. I couldn't put it down till I was done and had written a letter of thanks to the author. It will inspire all who read it to be thankful for their blessings and to do exploits for the sake of the gospel. Truly the Trebilcos have been motivated in the same way as the Moravian missionaries long ago who said, May the Lamb that was slain receive the rewards of His sufferings.
