The Amusings of a Missionary

Ken Board

The Amusings of a Missionary

Ken Board

$38.99

Paperback
The Amusings of A Missionary tickles your funny bone and touches your heart with the truths of the Word of God as Ken Board shares amusing and sometimes embarrassing experiences of being a missionary. When Board first arrived on the island of Kyushu in southwestern Japan, the only Japanese word he knew was �sayonara.� Imagine being immersed into unusual Japanese customs and the perplexing circumstances that visitors to the Orient face let alone not speaking the language!

For the past 41 years of being involved in the ministry of establishing churches in the northern part of Kyushu, Board has been dubbed, �Mister Humor� by pastors in Japan, and is well known for his practical jokes. You will learn how Board had to battle a mob of ladies on Valentine's Day-and why he brought a bottle of soy sauce that he didn't want. You'll even find that spiders, snakes, centipedes, and dragonflies can actually confirm Biblical principles that are essential to a joyous, faith-filled life!

Whether reaching the ladies with funny stories on cooking and cleaning, or catching the eye of the avid sportsman, this book also has several messages that end with an appeal to non-Christians, making it a helpful gift for unsaved friends and relatives.

The Amusings of A Missionary gives life's mistakes a Biblical application, and causes you to reflect on your own relationship with the Lord. Sometimes it's okay to laugh at someone else's expense! We're going deep into missionary work....one blooper at a time!
