Made for the Journey

About The Book:

In this deeply personal account of her first year as a missionary, Elisabeth Elliot shares the challenges she faced as she worked in the jungles of Ecuador to bring the Word of God to a people virtually untouched by the outside world. With fascinating detail, she captures the stark realities of life in the jungle, the difficulties she encountered while developing a written language for the tribe, and her confusion when God didn't "cooperate" with her efforts to accomplish what she believed was His will.

More than just a memoir, Made for the Journey is a beautifully crafted and deeply personal reflection on the important questions of life and a remarkable testimony to authentic Christian obedience to an unfathomable God.

My Thoughts:  First written in 2004 as "These Strange Ashes"; this book give s the account of Elizabeth Elliot's first year as a missionary.    Well written and very insightful, it gives the reader a closer glimpse of a woman who devoted her life to missions and serving God.

This is an enjoyable read and gives a comprehensive look at what a missionary can face in a foreign country.  

It's a book of encouragement to those who are thinking or looking into following God's call to taking His word out into the world. 

This is a book that all will enjoy

Elisabeth Elliot (1926-2015) was one of the most perceptive and popular Christian writers of the last century. The author of more than twenty books, including Passion and Purity and The Journals of Jim Elliot, Elliot offered guidance and encouragement to millions of readers worldwide.
