    $7.99

    Polycarp; Alban; Sir John Oldcastle; Thomas Cranmer; George Wishart; James Chalmers; Dietrich Bonhoeffer; Nate Saint; Ivan Moiseyev; Graham Staines.

    These ten boys grew up to become men who didn’t give in. Living as a Christian for them was difficult but they chose to do the right thing instead of the easy thing.

    Would you give in or would you resist?

    Polycarp was freed from slavery but then gave up his freedom for Christ; Alban was in danger from Roman soldiers but still would not bow down to their gods; John Oldcastle’s home was a hiding place, but he would not hide his faith; Cranmer was afraid of death but ended up showing courage; George Wishart was thrown in prison but kept on preaching about Jesus; James Chalmers brought the Bible to cannibals whatever the dangers; Dietrich Bonhoffer lived when people were frightened of speaking out but he would not be silent; Nate Saint flew into danger but knew it was worth it; Ivan Moiseyev obeyed his commanders but still put God first; Graham Staines lived to help leprosy patients, but died because he loved Jesus.

    In a world where we give in too easily – be inspired by those who didn’t!

  • Helen Roseveare : On His Majestys Service

    $7.99

    Helen Roseveare qualified as a doctor, packed up her life in England and set off to be a missionary in the Belgian Colony of the Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo). She went there to set up hospitals and rural clinics and train national nurses to work in them. Her work often took Helen on long journeys through dense forests on roads that would make a fairground ride seem tame!

    After Congo became an independent country Helen’s service was interrupted by the Simba Rebellion, during which she was assaulted and held captive for several months.

    After some time of recovery Helen went back to the renamed ‘Zaire’ to serve the Lord by working with the people there. In the years that followed she established a nurses’ training college in the hope that the nurses, midwives and health workers who trained there would spread out through the vast northeast region of the country, taking the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ with them.

    Since returning to the UK, Helen has travelled the world speaking about her experiences and been an inspiration to thousands of people.
