Fire in Their Bones

The True Story of a Missionary Couple's Forty Years in Africa
  • By Philip Randall
  • By Geneva Christensen
  • By Gordon Christensen
Gordon Christensen and Geneva Noren were born in different parts of the country and into different hard times. Gordon grew up in the south end of Seattle in the 1920s, where his family faced many struggles in the ""New Land"" to which they had moved after World War I. Geneva was raised on a small farm in Dust Bowl Kansas where faith in God was the family's greatest hope. God proved His love and care for these young people as they learned to trust in Him in any adversity--lessons that would be the key to life or death as these young Christians found each other, and found their way onto the mission field in the Belgian Congo. Their adventures, escapes, and discoveries underscore these truths about their God: He is all powerful, all loving, and everywhere present. Gordon and Geneva Christiansen live near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they are still active in ministry. Philip Randall has worked for newspapers on the East Coast for more than twenty years. He and his family currently reside in the beautiful foothills of South Carolina.
