Présentation de l'éditeur
Emily Evans has a hard time getting herself to class on time, much less figuring out God's will for her life. Then, to her surprise, she feels that God is calling her into full-time Christian service. She expects the Lord will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry, but Emily does not want to marry any of the available young men. She squares her shoulders and decides she will accept the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community--alone.
When Emily arrives at her new assignment, she is disappointed to find the church building in disrepair. After many days of hard work fixing it up, she announces her first service and is once again disappointed, this time in the size of her congregation. Is her faith strong enough to stand against the local doubters and myriad challenges that will test her calling?
Emily expects that along with His calling, God will also provide her with a companion to share her life and ministry. But Emily does not feel comfortable with agreeing to marry any of the young men who present themselves. The decision is made: On her own, Emily will take on the task of opening a new church in a pioneer community.
But were those struggling years of Emily's training sufficient preparation for all the responsibilities and challenges of running a parish? Is her faith planted firmly enough to not be shaken by local doubters? It is one thing for her church to have faith enough to send her, and quite another for her faith to sustain her away from family and friends.
