Item Description...
Overview
Tested and tried with more than any Christian could be expected to endure, these servants refused to allow Satan to send them packing back to America. American missionaries Jean Phillips and her husband Gene lived through some of the most harrowing moments in African history of the last half century--through unthinkable hardships that would have caused most people to abandon their cause. From the Rhodesian civil war to bush country living, to an abduction that almost took their lives, the Phillipses learned the dependability of God's rescue again and again. When all else seemed to fail them, God came through--sparing their lives, answering their prayers, making a way through the darkest nights, meeting their special family needs, and helping them sing praises despite one frightening, traumatic episode after another. Walk with this inspiring couple through those harrowing years when they were literally refined by the African fires blazing around them.

Foreword by International Mission Board President Jerry Rankin This is what others are saying about this book: "Anxiety, uncertainty, fear, emptiness, Repressed in the day. Expressed in the night. Where is their help? Where is their hope? Walk with these pilgrims. Try the truths of which they testify. And you, too, will prove Him who is The Way." -- Randy Sprinkle, International Prayer Strategy Director, International Mission Board "Walk in the path of this modern-day Priscilla anbd Aquilla as they live out their lives on mission with God in Africa." -- David Crutchley, former Africa missionary, now seminary leader "Through tears, laughter, joy and thanksgiving, Jean Phillips shares a journey of an astounding faith. God's omnipresence and power are seen in the lives of this one family." --Evelyn Blount, South Carolina Woman's Mission Union Jean Phillips was appointed a Southern Baptist career missionary in 1956 and served in Rhodesia (later renamed Zimbabwe) for 40 years. After retirement, she and husband Gene returned to Lesotho, Africa, as mission volunteers. Today, they make their home in South Carolina but frequently travel back to Africa to visit and minister.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Great Story about God's Faithfulness  May 6, 2008
My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading "Rescue." We have been so blessed and encouraged by all the lessons that Jean and Gene have learned and shared in that book. Jean is a gifted writer. We knew this already, having read her children's book "The Meaning of Christmas" to our daughter countless times. As pastor of the church where two of Jean's sisters are members, I deeply enjoyed "getting to know" Jean and her family more through reading this excellent book. I will be recommending it often to others. I have asked our church librarians to put my "Pastor's Picks" label on it for others to enjoy. Gene and Jean are truly heroes in the kingdom and we value their lives, ministries, and the brief moments of fellowship we have shared together.
 
Rescue  Aug 21, 2002
Jean Phillips' book RESCUE not only was very interesting but it gave me a new perspective on life. I particularly appreciate the last chapter concerning trials and affictions. It was the most straight forward and easy-to-understand explanation I have come across.
 
One Woman's Walk of Faith  Jul 10, 2002
This book is, to put it simply, a record of one woman's walk of faith. It is a depiction of God's servants being repeatedly led into the "valley of the shadow of death" and experiencing divine deliverance.For those who consider foreign missions "pie in the sky" preaching to the heathen, this book will immediately disabuse them of such a misconception.As a teenage friend, college suite mate, and bridesmaid to the author, I have intimate knowlege of her early dedication to God and His calling in her life. This book is a lifelong record of her answer to that call.The comment has often been made that some Christians are "so heavenly minded that they are of no earthly good". One of the most appealing facets of this book is the revelation of the oh-so-human emotions of the author and her husband, as they faced many hardships and even death while fulfilling the ministry to which God called them. She makes no attempt to hide nor deny these emotions, but reveals them to the reader, and in so doing shows us that by facing our humanity and turning it over to God, He is able use us to glorify His name, regardless of where our place of service may lie.The author presents to the reader not only the nitty-gritty aspects of day-to-day mission work, lived out with her husband over a period of more than 40 years, but also, the simple joy to be derived from seeing lives changed by God's working through His devoted servants.After many years, during which our paths took different directions, it was a blessing to recently renew our friendship and observe, first hand, how the many trials and tribulations the author and her family have endured have matured her faith and her love and acceptance of all God's creatures.
 
Against all Odds  Jun 27, 2002
The Phillips' journey of faith in Africa, which lasted over 40 years, is one that can be an encouragement to all. The watchcare of God over them, even in the midst of the Rhodesian Civil War and many other hazards, is a miracle. God honored their faithfulness with His faithfulness to them during their lifetime of service.
