Venturing With God In Congo ~ A Review

Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.

Venturing with God in Congo published by Conjurske Publications are the memoirs of Darrel Champlin. Darrel and his wife Louise were missionaries in Africa's Congo. This book recounts his many experiences with the people bringing them to Christ. As Darrel so eloquently stated in his book, "The eternal purpose of God is to call out from every kindred, tongue, people, and nation a miltitude redeemed by the blood of His Lab slain from the foundation of the world; over whom He will crown His Son, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, King of Kings and Lord of Lords forever. This is THE PASSION of the Heart of God that cannot be quenched, THE OBSESSION of his mind that cannot be denied, THE VISION of his eyes from eternity past into eternity future that will not dim, and THE DESTINATION to which he has committed his omnipotent, immutable, eternal being -- A Destination HE WILL NOT ABANDON." Wow those are some powerful words. Each story told echos these exact truths. I received a hardcover book. The cover both front and back draws attention to the book. In the middle of the book there is a photo gallery of various pictures. At the beginning of the book there is a pronunciation tips guide for the Lingala language. Also included is a timeline of important events as well as a map of the Congo. The book is 290 pages in length. 

My 13-year-old daughter said, "'Venturing With God In Congo' by Darrel Champlin, is a very inspiring and uplifting story. This book includes many examples about how anyone can come to God. As Darrel travels through the Congo, he shares his adventures about revealing the gospel to various people. These examples show the beauty and wonder of God’s world and the many consequences that are contained within it. This book has inspired me as a reader to follow God’s path more avidly than ever. It teaches how anyone,in any situation can become a firm believer in a few simple steps. As inspirational as it was, the book was repetitious. All the examples given were teaching practically the same thing, but with different examples each time. This is good in some cases, but it was a little too much for me. I would’ve enjoyed more variety in the story. Even though it was repetitious, this book taught good life lessons that are vital to having a healthy relationship with God. In this book you can learn that even the worst sinners can repent before it is too late. Some examples followed the story of people who were so set in their religion, that one thought they could never repent. Surprisingly enough, they did. They can rest assured that they have a future in heaven with their savior. Also, in this book, you can learn about the different cultures. Ways that they do simple thigs so differently is intriguing and fun to learn about. Overall, this story is a very essential book to read to gain a closer relationship with God."

Skimming through the book myself, I read select stories. One story entitled, At Death's Door: A Very Close Call relays the story of a sudden case of appendicitis with one of the missionaries and their harrowing experience with getting the medical attention needed to operate. All of the stories are eye-opening. Be sure to read what the rest of the Homeschool Review Crew had to say about Venturing with God in Congo.
