Peace Child



This book was so powerful for me because it was one of the first accounts I had read that
so clearly illustrated the marvelous hand of God. It just amazed me how God worked in
the Richardson's lives as missionaries, especially when their lives were at stake; they had to
completely surrender their trust to Him. In 1997, at the age of 22, I participated in a short
term mission trip to Papua New Guinea. There I met other missionaries that had been
there at the time that the Richardson's were doing their work. How profound it was to put
a picture with the words I had read 11 years prior. It was there that I truly came to
understand the meaning of perseverance. My respect for Don and his wife and others who
are devoting their lives to spreading God's Word, is beyond words.
