Have you ever wondered what itís like to be in the shoes of a missionary serving in a foreign country? Herbert Ward Barkerís memoir, Patiently Run the Race, reveals his stories during his service abroad.

The autobiography recounts the life and times of the authorís missionary family from the 1960s down to the early 2000s. The Barker family had mission services in Asian countries such as Taiwan, Singapore, Myanmar, The Philippines, and Hong Kong, as well as France in Europe.

In a review, writer Dorothy C. Synder considers the memoir as a ďmust-read.Ē Missionary executive and seminary teacher Faye Pearson says that the book aids ďmissionaries, ministers and serious ChristiansĒ in realizing how ďlife is lived out in lands of darkness where the Light of Jesus needs so desperately to be heard.Ē

Patiently Run the Race is not a book about the doctrine of missions. Rather, it is a fun, humorous, and inspiring autobiography that is sure to keep readers glued until the last page.
