Go in the Strength You Have is an outstanding book that will inspire and encourage you. It is written with candor, humor, and faith, some of the very qualities needed to be a missionary. To be a missionary, one must be willing to move to places that make us uncomfortable, learn new languages and learn to love people in new ways that stretch us into the likeness of Christ. Rayola and Georgeanne have poured out their lives and hearts to many people in various cities and languages across cultures and continents. They have faced both hardships and triumph with humility, dignity, and grace. As you will see, we are all serving on a mission somewhere! I pray this book leaves you inspired and helps you to “Go in the strength you have.” —H. Hervé Fleurant (from the Foreword)
