Summary
Missionaries the Mennonite churches in North America sent to East Africa in the mid-20th century often returned home with a new vision of revival: Walk with Jesus Christ and allow nothing to disturb that relationship. Call sin "sin" and repent of it quickly, they proclaimed. Then receive an infusion of the Holy Spirit in all of life. This book tells the story of how this movement ultimately provided Mennonites and others a way to reignite the smoldering fires of revival. Imbedded in the story is the message of God's redeeming and sanctifying power
