Title: TALES OF THE NOT FORGOTTEN
Author: Beth Guckenberger
Publisher: Standard Publishers
Genre: Inspirational/missions/young adults
TALES OF THE NOT FORGOTTEN are stories of orphans in various places of the world, the tales of the ones that the world doesn’t see—unless you’re a missionary.
Joel dares to ask for what he can’t have. Seraphina sacrifices what she can’t afford to give. Ibrahim looks for answers buried out of reach. Christiana, saved by a mission, searches for her own.
These are real stories about real kids that will take you to faraway lands and unknown faces. You’ll see their challenges, be moved to tears for these poor children, and see the hand of God working miracles you’d never imagine!
Wow! That is all I can say. I was crying by the time I finished the first story and I am totally glad that God has provided hands/missionaries to help care for these people. God is so good.
There is a companion leader’s guide (on cd-rom) to use with this book so you can help children in your tweener youth group or Sunday School class to understand. It is filled with fun activities, compelling stories, biblical teaching and practical applications. (ISBN: 978-0-7847-3527-5)
This is an awesome missionary book for tweeners. My ten year old sat down and read it in a couple hours, and gave the book to her older (twenty-one) brother, who now wants to go on a mission trip and help however he can. Highly recommended. $8.99. 208 pages.
