New memoir chronicles her many surprising miracles and victories
LONGWOOD, FL--New from Xulon Press is No Place for Plastic Saints: Earthquakes, Chicken Feet and Candid Confessions of a Missionary Wife, a remarkable story that chronicles how a simple girl from the Midwest finds being a missionary is not what she expected, and struggles to adapt to a foreign culture that brings her both pain and surprising joy. In Margaret A. Register's compelling new memoir, the author describes her experiences of loneliness, fear, frustration, and failure, along with surprising miracles and victories. She learns that she does not want to be what she dubs a "plastic saint"--that is, brittle and hollow and stuck in neutral instead of real, transparent, and pliable.
Says Register, "How does God call a person to become a missionary and cope with foreign foods, different customs, and learn to fit in? You'll see! I want you to laugh with me, sit beside me, and even cry with me. Sometimes God answered my prayers. Sometimes He didn't. Still, tiny flames of faith burned within my heart. May my experiences inspire, inform, and challenge you to know that God listens and responds to cries for help."
A missionary for 38 years, Register ministered in various countries and on television programs that continue to reach 200 countries on 14 satellites even today. The author walked through despair after she, her husband, and their two children departed their homeland for Latin America to help serve God and others. But by doing this, the author explains, the family also walked into great joy. "You can, too," she says. "[My] story will convince you of this."
