My Friend and I by Lysanne Gray

Step through a round doorway and take a peek into daily life in West Africa. In this world of mud huts, grass roofs, and outdoor cooking fires, two little friends enjoy each others company. One of the little girls is the daughter of missionaries, who love to tell their African friends about Jesus. As the girls share food, help wash clothes at the river, and put the baby brother to sleep, they also talk about God and the Bible stories they have heard. The author has illustrated the story with colourful, authentic scenes from a rural African village such as the one where she and her husband serve.

Setting: Ghana

Twig the Collie by Craig Massey

Gordon, a young boy wrongfully accused of burglary, is sent to the country to live with relatives in an attempt to break him of his 'bad influences'. While there, Gordon battles against the prejudices of his cousin Willie, as well as the sin in his own life. When Gordon meets Mr. Blueweather, he hears the gospel for the first time in his life and quickly becomes a Christian. Gordon must then learn how to handle his anger at Willie and his self-pity in a different way.

This book has been a favourite for generations. It clearly and attractively teaches our need to accept God's forgiveness and to forgive others.

Lights in a Dark Place by Rebecca Davis

Stories of God at work in Columbia. Colombia has been known as a land of violence—Colombian people have reacted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ by cursing the messengers, beating them, kidnapping them, killing them, burning down their houses. But from those burnings have shot out sparks and flames and beams of light, as the gospel has continued to shine forth in the midst of darkness. God has conquered demons of darkness, delivered people from burning houses, healed ones who cursed and even rescued kidnapers. 14 stories of the Light of the World shining in the land of Colombia, South America.

 The fifth book in the Hidden Heroes series.

A "Thinking Further" section in the back of the book gives Scripture verses and discussion questions for each chapter.
