Moses never wanted to be a leader. Jonah ran away from his missions call. And when Marcia Moston's husband came home with a call to foreign missions, she was sure God had the wrong number. His call conflicted with her own dreams, demanded credentials she didn't have, and required courage she couldn't seem to find. She promised to follow where God led, but she never thought the road would lead to a Mayan village on a Guatemalan mountainside.
From the trecherous road trip to their new village home, to learning to navigate a new culture, to a stateside mission field in Vermont, Moston's journey reveals that God leads just as clearly today as he did in biblical times. Her candid account tells a story of learning to trust and obey when faithfulness seems foolish.
Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is an engaging reminder that with our very real God in control, cowards become courageous and ordinary people find great purpose.

- Review by Debbie
Right from the beginning this book kept me engrossed and I didn't want to stop reading! From the start when the Mostons must travel a scary cliff side road to a small village, through every word of fear, prayer, humor and sorrow, this book was not only a story of faith, bravery and spiritual stremgth, but sprinkled with humbling bits of humor!
I found myself not only counting my blessing, reading about the living conditions they must get used to, but strengthened by the faith it took to do so!
The book was also well written and witty - something I appreciate when reading a book about such a subject that could just be a bunch of monotonous details about someones life stuck together.
Highly recommended read for every woman who is feeling a little 'too comfortable' ! :)
I was given a free review copy of this book, however these opinions are my own. (Posted on 12/7/12)
