Take a light-hearted, inside look at the colourful life of a modern missionary. Suzanne Crocker's adventures in Africa will inspire you to find strength for your daily tasks and to keep your sense of humour, even in the middle of hardship.

"Suzanne Crocker has served as a missionary in West Africa for ten years. Along with her husband, John, she has shared the gospel and planted churches while effectively ministering to suffering and human need through her personal medical ministry. However, there is another side to missionary life. The challenge of cross-cultural adjustments and demands of an austere lifestyle create situations that are embarrassing, humorous, and opportunities for growth. Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures will be amusing and enjoyable reading for anyone interested in missionary life. But Crocker's writing is more than entertaining. Out of each anecdote is a spiritual lesson to be learned and insight into how to pray for missionaries in a more practical and relevant way."--Jerry Rankin, president, International Mission Board"Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures captured my heart. I was like a sponge, taking it in from cover to cover. I couldn't put it down. It reflects a marvelous insight into mission life. I laughed, I cried, I rejoiced, and I praised the Lord. Having enjoyed the privilege of participating in four short-term mission encounters with the Crockers in Togo and Benin, West Africa, I found that reading of their adventures added to my awareness of what it must be like to walk in missionary shoes. It enhanced my appreciation and love for all Great Commission champions. I would encourage everyone to secure a copy of Suzanne's refreshing book. Reading it will 'step up' your intercessory prayer for missionaries; it will encourage increased involvement and investment in global missions. And you'll be glad!"--Dick Thomassian, president, Training in Mission Evangelism (TIME)"The book Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures by Suzanne Crocker is a wonderful read. I have been reading books for seventy-five plus years, and this is one of my favorites. It will appeal to all ages. It is a must-read for all who are considering missionary service, either short-term or career. They will definitely profit by reading the book."--B.Gray Allison, president emeritus, Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary"Suzanne is a wonderful person. She is as transparent in real life as anyone with whom I am acquainted. Her serious and yet lighthearted way of telling a story makes for easy reading. As a devotional-type book, Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures has a novel emphasis on practical application that is refreshing. However, I think Suzanne's greatest strength is the unique way in which she appeals to the reader to think about missionaries as real people with real needs."--Dr. Jimmy E. Jackson, senior pastor, Whitesburg Baptist Church

You can't be a good missionary without a good snake story," jokes Suzanne Crocker. And as a missionary to Africa, she has plenty! Crocker's stories are current, funny, and sure to hit close to home. Each fascinating vignette is accompanied by Scripture, practical application, and ideas on how to pray for missionaries around the world.

Pig in a Taxi and Other African Adventures addresses topics such as obedience, materialism, hospitality, and sensing God's presence in every situation. Its lighthearted tone challenges readers to keep their sense of humor and let it strengthen them in their daily tasks. Moms, missionaries-to-be, and those who support missions will enjoy this inside look at family life on the mission field.
