The Magnet
Written by Mary McDonald
Reviewed by Nita Dempsey

Dear friends, I commend this well written and heartfelt book to you. Mary takes us on the personal journey of her childhood through her adulthood and on to how Jesus redeemed trauma and used joy to form her calling as a missionary veterinarian. This is a bold and frank telling of a little girl’s losses and victimization, a teen’s rebellion and aspirations, a young adult’s disillusionment, to finally and beautifully a step into the redemption and purpose of our Lord. This is a story that will inspire you in your faith and endear you to the author. Whatever we are facing or have endured, this story affirms the power of Jesus Christ to restore us to our true selves.

Tania de la Cantera: a book review and invitation

This post is first in a series of book reviews highlighting works by SAMS missionaries. These books will be available at our SAMS Dinner in September!  You won’t want to miss it!

Tania de la Cantera
By Suzy McCall
Book Review by Denise Cox 

Life in a poor urban neighborhood in Honduras is complex and filled with both joy and sorrow. In this fictional story of one family’s day to day experiences, SAMS Missionary Suzy McCall vividly portrays life in a poor Tegucigalpa neighborhood. The story swiftly draws one in, as in each chapter one longs to know how the life of Tania will turn out. Her teenage mom and dad, her rough grandmother, and kind neighbor are all portrayed with realistic clarity. This fictional account provides a deeper understanding of the pressures faced by those living in poverty in Central America.
