Dr. Pildo Joung's book is a gift to Christ's Church. Dr. Joung recounts more than six decades of ministry in his family, local church, and global outreach, from his conversion to his call to ministry to the lessons God has taught him over the years. The principles he raises (faith, humility, prayer, and more) are biblically- grounded, effective, cross-culturally relevant, and convicting. Pastors, missionaries, church-planters, and missionally- minded disciples of Jesus will benefit deeply from reading and reflecting on this book. The focus is squarely where it ought to be: our triune God himself and our reliance upon and trusting obedience of Him. Written in an accessibly readable narrative style, yet with profound insight and the wisdom of more than a half-century of experience in following Jesus and serving His people, Dr. Joung's book is a wonderful compendium of lessons drawn from the laboratory of life, tested by the Scriptures, and attested to by the Spirit's work in and through a life consecrated to the Lord. It will refresh, challenge, and encourage the reader to walk with God and witness God's power in building His Church. The Rev. Samuel H.
