The new book has a few pictures in it. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to include as many as I wanted. With this blog post, I’d like to share some that didn’t make the cut into the book.

“If you’re tired of the modern glamorization of mission and long for a raw and realistic portrayal of everyday, ordinary mission work, then this book is for you. Wes Bredenhof has compiled a fascinating and prayer-provoking account of his labor of love among the most remote First Nations people of North America. It will open your eyes — and your heart.”
–Dr. David P. Murray, professor of Old Testament and practical theology at Puritan Theological Seminary
My new book is now available, both in e-book and print format. From the back cover:
In 2000, the Smithers Canadian Reformed Church called Wes Bredenhof to be a missionary working among the First Nations in north-central British Columbia. The Gospel Under the Northern Lights tells the story of how that call came to be and how it was carried out. The forests and mountains of BC seem to naturally produce heaps of characters, stories, and adventures. This memoir introduces you to some of them. Along the way you’ll hear of what a privilege and challenge it is to be a messenger of the gospel to a broken world and how that good news of Jesus Christ is still what it is desperately needed among all nations.
You can order it here.
