Editorial Reviews


It is my delight to endorse my dear brother Brian Hogan's book. I have known Brian and his family for a long time. Without pioneer missionaries like Brian and Louise Hogan, the great awakening Mongolia experienced would have been impossible. With great sacrifice they laid down everything for God's Kingdom in Mongolia, but their sacrifice wasn't in vain. Erdenet Assembly, which their team established, has been a model to young Mongolian churches, and a great encouragement to indigenous believers to step up and take on leadership within their churches and in their communities and country as well. Brian has a heart for Mongolians. His great skill, biblical knowledge, respect toward Mongolian tradition, culture and history, and his sense of humor were easily embraced by the locals. His actions were louder than his words, for which he was loved not only by local Christians, but by non-Christians as well. No one can tell the story of Mongolian church birth, growth, and struggles better than Brian Hogan. His first hand experience is helpful to not only missionaries who are about to start their journeys, but also to local believers who are writing the history of Mongolian Christianity. That's why I am offering my support and if he wants to publish his book in Mongolian, I am honored to ask him to finish this task. --- Baika Puntsag, pastor, Amazing Grace Mongolian Church, Denver, 1st Mongolian church in USA. A great read. I was drawn in by the struggles and victories experienced by the Hogan family as they dreamed the impossible: to see a church planting movement established in Mongolia. This book is stuffed with powerful New Testament Apostolic church planting principles-something woefully absent in today's missionary literature. Brian writes from "hands on" practical experience and not theory. Excellent!! I highly recommend There's a Sheep in my Bathtub to anyone who dreams of the impossible. A must-read for any future church planter on all continents! --- the late Jeff Gilbertson, church planter to the Tajiks Brian keeps the story rolling. You won't put this book down easily. But while you're having fun turning the pages, you'll find yourself amazed at the God who puts the move in Christ-following movements. You'll find yourself coached without realizing it, learning all kinds of wisdom about how to over-achieve in seemingly impossible things. Mongolia may be one of the best laboratories to learn about how Christ becomes famous and followed throughout an entire people. And this could be one of the best bundle of lessons learned. Brian is transparent about his misgivings and mistakes, and at the same time he is disarmingly clear about the principles that he was proving true. It's hard not come away feeling that you are ready to attempt something great yourself. --- Steve Hawthorne, editor of Perspectives on the World Christian Movement I've known Brian and Louise for many years, and have been deeply impressed with their extraordinary commitment to the Lord and to His eternal purpose of spreading His love, mercy, tenderness, compassion and forgiveness to the ends of the Earth. Their lives truly demonstrate the Lord's Father Heart made flesh in a winsomely genuine way that is incredibly attractive and deeply compelling. I was unable to put this book down. This masterful and engaging story of their joys and sorrows, overwhelming challenges, perseverance in tribulation and astounding successes in Mongolia is a testimony to both their undaunted spirit and the unwavering faithfulness of God to accomplish His word with great power through normal people just like you and me. The timeless spiritual principles embedded in these pages will both inspire and instruct those who want to know and understand the Lord and His vision for the world in a deeper and clearer way. I can't recommend it to you highly enough! --- Fred Markert, director of the Center for Strategic Initiatives --This text refers to the paperback edition.

George Patterson is a former missionary, author and professor at Western Seminary. He labored 21 years in Central America training pastors in a way that multiplies churches In Honduras he began by training pastors in a traditional, resident Bible Institute with poor results. With the advice of more experienced missionaries and much trial and error, he later saw churches multiply through the instrumentality of "Theological Education and Evangelism by Extension" (TEEE). This non-formal pastoral training resulted in twenty years in about 100 new churches in northern Honduras. This is as a result of the Biblical discipleship and church reproduction principles Dr. Patterson implemented. This model is now used with similar results in Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well in the United States, and is distributed as Train & Multiply TM. George mentors workers who seriously want to follow New Testament guidelines to sustain church planting movements, many of whom have made significant breakthroughs. Dr. Ralph Winter describes George as "one of the two or three world experts in the growth of the church," and calls his missionary career "legendary."

Louise was born and raised in the Mohave Desert on a Naval base. Her father was a Cold War rocket scientist. She competed nationally and set records in swimming and graduated in Physical Education from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in California. Louise and Brian married a week after graduation in 1984. She has borne five children naturally and mostly at home. Louise has moved thirty times in thirty years of marriage. She is an talented artist, seamstress, and midwife. Louise has a calling to train traditional birth attendants in African villages in ways that encourage multiplication and discourage dependency. This book is as much her story as it is the author's. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
