This month, "In the Library" features a new series of DVDs entitled Dispatches from the Front.
This series from Frontline Missions ( http://www.frontlinemissions.info) shows God's Spirit working in some of the world's darkest, most difficult mission fields.
These presentations give you wonderful insight into the countries and the lives of brothers and sisters in Christ presenting the Gospel and starting churches in these difficult areas: 1 - Islands on the Edge: Southeast Asia (probably not for younger kids, lots on " trafficking") 2 - A Bold Advance: Albania, Kossovo & Montenegro 3 - I Once Was Blind: West Africa 4 - Souls of the Brave: India 5 - Father, Give Me Bread: Ethiopia & South Sudan
The special features sections of each DVD have more information on the mission.
Get up to the library this week and check out this eye-opening, prayer-inducing, God-glorifying series.
