Author Christina Berry & Her Super Mom — 9 Comments

  1. Just finished reading Evidence Not Seen: A Woman’s Miraculous Faith in the Jungles of World War II by Darlene Deibler Rose, who joined her husband as a missionary in North Borneo and survived as a Japanese POW and continued her ministry with her second husband. Truthfully, I doubt I could do the same.

  2. If God wants me to go to another continent, I would. God knows what’s best for me
    Thank you for this post. I loved the interview with Christina.

  3. Lori, isn’t that one of the best things about reading a book by someone you know? Originally, On the Threshold was set in Pendleton instead of the fictional Beaver Falls, so you would have recognized even more. 🙂

  4. Jackie, your prayers are a HUGE blessing to those missionaries, I’m sure!

    Ruth Ann, how exciting/intimidating. I have no doubt that if you go where God guides, He’ll be there beside you!

  5. Thank you for sharing this Christina. I loved the book, and saw bits of your Mom in it (as well as some other names I identified). I feel blessed to have known both of your parents in the time they were living in Pendleton. And in answer to your question of whether we would go if God sent us to another continent I would say absolutely. We also uprooted our family and lived for a year in the Dominican Republic for a year a missionaries, and it was an experience we all still treasure. I have been to Haiti and Ecuador on short term mission trips as well…the best place to be is exactly where God calls and leads. He’ll provide the details!

  6. Great post….loved it! I am too old to even think about going far away; a senior citizen…….I do enjoy praying for missions, missionaries, as well as supporting them with donations!
    Thanks for offering your book!

  7. Thank you for the interesting blog post. What a wonderful woman of God your mother is, Christina. Your co-authored book sounds wonderful. Please enter me in the draw.

    And to answer the question, it appears that I might be moving right across the world to Ireland in the next year or two. If this is what God wants, I’ll accept it and go in His strength because it’s His Will, but it will be very hard as I’ll be leaving my children and grandchildren behind. Thankfully there’s Skype to keep in touch instantly unlike your mother’s time in Nigeria when letters took so long.

  8. Oh, my, Christina, what a wonderful SURPRISE this was!! Your words mean so much, and I know that one day Andrea and Lili will be saying the same kind of things about you! I’m so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with such an incredibly close relationship. I don’t take it for granted! Lyn, thank you for hosting “us” on your blog. We really appreciate it!
