This month our group read is Joshua's Mission. It's the second in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. It is a stand-alone novel. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop's granddaughter, plans on joining their team.

What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?

Joshua's Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.

Susann Williams | 23 comments I really like this book! I feel like the characters were real and not just characters I was reading about in an Amish novel. They dealt with real problems stemming from issues of faith to body image and eating disorders. I also had never heard of Amish people going on missions trips so that is something I would like to explore a little bit more about.
