The Plum Tree in the Desert by Naomi Reed and published by Authentic Media.
The book has ten inspiring stories of faith and mission from Asia and the Arab World from the mission agency Interserve.
In The Plum in the Desert Naomi Reed tells stories of difficult situations in the mission field; some of victory, some which left the mission workers feeling they had failed. But despite the difficulties and perceived failures, each story speaks of the goodness of God and what it means to persevere and trust in him, even when it seems too hard. These stories give us a new perspective on those perceived failures and remind us that "in all things God works for the good of those who love him".
