The Mission Field Brought to Your Living Room

HOPATCONG, N.J., May 8, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- What if you could travel to five continents and visit 60 missionaries as each one told you the story of how God is transforming lives where they serve? What if you had a front row seat in these 60 locations so you could see with your own eyes the utter need these people face every day? What if you could look into the eyes of desperate people and feel their pain -- and sense their hopelessness?

Missionary photojournalist, Brad Guice, enables you to do just that through the pages of his new book, THE CALL TO MISSIONS. Guice, an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in major publications including NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, has spent 19 years on the mission field, between commercial assignments, shooting the images that appear in THE CALL TO MISSIONS. He invested another eight years gathering the missionary testimonies.

Brad shares how God incredibly opened the door for him to go to the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador to visit the Auca Indians (the tribe that killed five missionaries a generation ago): "I bumped into a man on the streets of New Orleans where I had gone to do relief work after Katrina. He mentioned to me that he was a missionary. I told him I was working on a book about the mission field and had just received the testimony from Elizabeth Elliot, wife of one of the murdered missionaries in Ecuador. He told me, 'I am one of only a few people who has access to that tribe.' He agreed to take me to visit the Aucas, and his story also appears in my book." Brad has many more stories as amazing as this one, which he shares whenever he speaks to audiences.

Brad is transitioning into a pastoral role at a satellite congregation of Times Square Church, founded by David Wilkerson, author of the best-selling book, THE CROSS AND THE SWITCHBLADE. Before he went to be with the Lord, David said of Brad and this book, "Each of Brad's photos issues a powerful missionary call. I believe as you peruse these pages you'll find yourself moved.... It is a modern-day look at the Great Commission as told by missionaries themselves."
