PRATTVILLE, Ala. (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
In her 2012 book “God in the Outback” (published by Inspiring Voices), author Jo Bourne looks back at her amazing experiences while working as a missionary in Australia. It is a chronicle of the good, the challenges and wondrous feelings she had while making a difference in the lives of many people.
When Bourne lost her husband, Bill, she worried that she had also lost her way in life and her will to live. With “God in the Outback” she reveals how she found a new purpose and a new path when she answered a call from God to become a missionary, traveling to Australia to help people in need and spread the word of God.
“Everything was completely in God’s hands,” she explains, “from providing the means to make the trip to all the ministries he called me into, to being there for a young teenage girl who thought she might be called on to commit suicide, to teaching Sunday school, to helping in the classroom and teaching Bible Lessons when called on, to visiting two young women in prison.”
Bourne recounts her missionary experiences in Australia for readers. She showcases her successes and her challenges, but she lets readers see that she was working to make a positive difference by bringing God’s word to them.
“With God anything is possible,” she says.
