Missionary Study: George Muller...

This year I've added Missionary Study to our list of subjects.  For the first term, I chose George Muller.  A friend borrowed us the YWAM audio CD for George Muller, The Guardian of Bristol's Orphans by Janet & Geoff Benge.  We listened to it on Thursdays while traveling to and from our homeschool choir.  There were 17 chapters and the audio had a running time of 4:39 hours over the course of four CDs.

The story of George Muller is a compelling testimony a prodigal brought to faith.  Muller's early years as a common thief and the life of the party gave no indication of how the Lord would use him later in life to provide for the orphans of Bristol.  This wonderful biography shows that God has a plan for each and every one of us.  Muller's transformation and trust in God in his later years was truly amazing.  By his faith, the Lord provided.

George Muller was our first YWAM  biography, but we would definitely recommend it and read another.  I very much enjoyed the audio format, which is not my typical preference.  The narrator added to the mood of the story.

Part way through the story, the kids remembered me reading The Bandit of Ashley Downs, A Trailblazer Book by Dave & Neta Jackson.  I read it aloud several years ago as part of Sonlight.  It is fascinating to me the way they make connections without poking and prodding, but simply reading and allowing them to digest.
