Missionary’s autobiography recommended by 
3rd Vice President Cindy Allen: 


Tow Sacks by Buddy Johnson

Buddy Johnson is no stranger to many in the BMA.  He spent most of his life on the mission field in Mexico, planting churches and loving people.  In this autobiography, he shares the call that God placed on his heart during an event filled trip to Mexico in 1971.  The road was not always easy but the blessings were abundant, not only for Buddy but for many, many villagers in Mexico.  You will meet interesting characters, fall in love with the family, and learn some great history.  But most of all, the book will remind you that God has some task for all of us and if we have the courage to follow him, he will certainly “lend us Tow Sacks” too.   And as Buddy reminds readers at the end of the book, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” Matt 9:37-38

Here is a book recommended by 
3rd Vice President Cindy Allen: 

I joined the prayer team at church, and I will be honest, it wasn’t because I am the greatest prayer but because I wanted motivation to do better in this area.  The leader of our group bought each member a book by Priscilla Shirer, Fervent: A Woman’s Battle Plan for Serious, Specific, and Strategic Prayer.  This is one of the most exciting books I have read in a while.  It is broken in to 10 strategies to a better prayer life.  Each strategy is combating a device the devil uses to weaken not only our prayer life but our Christian walk.  I have not made it through all the strategies but I am soaking in the ones I have read and trying to apply them to my life.  I think this book would be a great study for any individual or group.  It will be a great addition to this study to view the movie War Room.
