How can anyone look back on 36 years of experiences that have included broken-down cars, near-fatal traffic accidents, serious illnesses, the near-death of a child, prolonged separation from loved ones, and rebuffed efforts at presenting the gospel, and truly marvel at God’s goodness?

Yet that is exactly what Joe and Leona Tarry do in their account of God’s provision for them during more than three-and-a-half decades of serving God as career missionaries in Brazil. Through their intimate stories of lives touched and churches planted in unlikely places such as jail cells, slums, and neighborhoods previously resistant to the gospel, the Tarrys describe working alongside Brazilian Baptist colleagues to bring about fruit in experiences that only God could have orchestrated.

Although the Tarrys document Satan’s efforts to derail them at every turn, they major on God’s protection and how lovingly He provides for His children when they depend totally on Him. They emphasize that they were but human vessels that simply sought to be Christ’s servants and that God worked in their weaknesses to yield results that last.

For more than three-and-a-half decades Joe and Leona Tarry were career missionaries to Brazil. They now live in Ruidoso, NM, and have three grown children and their spouses and six grandchildren.
