Scaling the Wall
This book will be helpful to anyone who has fears or reservations about pursuing a role in the world of missions whether short-term, mid-term or life-long.
At the Urbana 2001 missions conference hundreds of college students were posed the question, 'What is keeping you from becoming involved in the Great Commission?' Their fears were written on a large wall and later collected, compiled, and categorized. Fears such as loss of friends, loss of money, disapproval of parents, and inadequate experience surfaced as common hurdles.
Missionaries, from many organizations and from around the world who have experienced these same fears, share their personal stores of how God overcame and met their needs in ways they could have never expected.
