However, at this point I found myself being swept up in the enormity of what was being accomplished on these mission trips. He and his team have been harvesting countless precious souls for eternity. And most of those reached have been existing in lifelong conditions of abject poverty, hunger, inadequate shelter and clothing, often terrible , unimaginable abuse, and certainly fear and hopelessness. Imagine what the message of the Gospel means to them! Ultimately this is not a book about Rick Blaisdell, but rather a testament to what God can do through a humble man of giant and unwavering faith, even now in the 21st century. I highly recommend this book. The expanded and updated edition is wonderful.

The improvements made in the rewriting of this novel were remarkable. I think the new book now captures the reality of it all and how the author becomes who God wants him to be. I could feel the experiences and appreciated the history of the journey. Everything seemed to jump out in detail and is an excellent rewrite to an already awesome book.
Each chapter retelling of supernatural events, healings, and deliverances will serve to encourage you in your walk with Jesus and in the ministry field he has equipped you to operate.

From the Author
I wish to take this opportunity to express my thanksgiving and deep appreciation to the many friends, family members, and beloveds in the faith who have read my first book, One Life to Give. This page is dedicated to you for your thoughtful and insightful comments and reviews. I treasure them all dearly. I am especially thankful for the kind words and helpful suggestions of my beloved wife Faith, and our children, with all your busy schedules, to find the time to read and to help make this book what it should be: a twenty-year testimony of God's miraculous working power in the lives of thousands of people in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, the Republic of Slovakia, Kenya Africa, the Philippines, and many remote villages in South India. Faith, the personal sacrifices you made to remain at home with our children when they were young and in school has a great testimony that stands forever. Each time I was overseas on a mission trip, I could feel the power of your prayers as you released your faith in God to care for me. There were times when I found myself in risky situations, and I knew at such times, your prayers were of great value to ensure a good outcome.
This book was written to be an inspiration to those who may think that just because they are only one person, "What difference can my life make"? If that is you considering whether or not to read this book, please do.
This book is a witness and a testimony of how God has taken a former drug addict and alcoholic, and transformed my life into something more precious and valuable than I ever knew possible. It is also written to give you the reader, the courage to never give up, and never look back. Keep a willing and open heart. God has great plans for you and your future. You have a destiny to fulfill. Allow God to use you as one of His chosen vessels for all the time you have left to serve Him.
