About "We Died Before We Came Here: A True Story of Sacrifice and Hope"

Stephen Foreman and his wife Emily dared to put their lives completely in God's hands when they left their comfortable American lifestyle for the deserts of North Africa. This is the powerful memoir of a family who gave their all, so that Christ's kingdom might spread in the Muslim world.
- Koorong

:If not you, who? If not now, when? This was the challenge answered by Stephen Foreman and his wife, Emily, when they traded in their American white picket fence for a giant, dusty sandbox as missionaries in the deserts of North Africa. Stephen had given Emily a well-read copy of Foxe's Book of Martyrs on their first date, a telling foreshadowing of the ultimate cost he would pay when, at 39, he was shot and killed by al-Qaeda operatives in 2009. His life and death planted a seed of boldness and inspiration in the hearts of local believers. This seed would grow and multiply efforts to help reach the very goal that Stephen was willing to give his life for?glorifying God and seeing his Kingdom established among the nations.

In this memoir, Emily, left with four kids and an undying calling to reach the Muslim world, recounts their heartrending yet uplifting story of sacrifice and love for a people held captive by the ultimate Enemy. Stephen did not die in vain. This promise echoes through the book's pages and far beyond, in the minds and lives of countless individuals touched by a man who daily put his life in the hands of God.

Because of security issues and the need to protect other workers and local believers in the country, the book employs pseudonyms for all major characters, including the authors.

A great reminder about what's really important.
4 stars By Jess, Jan 06 2017
This was a fabulous book, that really got to the heart of the Christian calling to die to self and live for Jesus. A good reminder to think about what the purpose of life really is.
