About the Book

This book traces the major events in the history of Mennonite Brethren mission work in Latin America. Mennonite Brethren immigrants to North America from Russia brought with them a vision for Christian mission outreach, something that characterized the Mennonite renewal movement from its birth in 1860. The story of North American MB missionary work in Latin America is only a small part of the broad sweep of the 20th-century mission movement. The methods used and the polices made reflect the mission thinking current in that day.
