Faces in the Crowd by Donna S. Thomas

About the Author:
Donna Thomas has the unusual experience of speaking and training leaders in countries as far away as China, Egypt, and India. In addition, she now has four books published and in the hands of Christian families and leaders. Pulling stories out of her, you will find that she has earned the label of: teacher, co-founder of a church, cofounder of a missions agency, co-founder of short-term missions (then an unknown opportunity) taking over 6,000 participants, pilot and manager of a 40-passenger plane, partner with twelve key international Christian leaders, funded the first church built in China in 1984 after the Communist Revolution, and has helped Christians in seventy-six countries.

Faces in the Crowd is a how- to book on the subject of reaching out to the multi-cultural communtiy. Donna Thomas uses anecedotes, scriture and action plans to help teach others how to reach out. Wouldn't it be great if we all did this? I mean we are called to spread the word. i loved the fact that Donna put "things to consider" and action steps at the end of each chapter to help guide us to step out of our confort zones and talk about Chirst to others. i know the book is suppose to focus on the international community but I think this is a practical guide to help Christians feel more comfortable spreading the word to all.

Nice to find your blog this morning! I totally relate to what you said on your sidebar about Jesus carrying you - not just walking beside you:-) Amen to that.
