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.
