Project Solomon: The True Story of a Lonely Horse Who Found a Home—and Became a Hero

Jodi Stuber and Jennifer Marshall Bleakley

(This audiobook is recommended for adult listeners).
“It’s hard to be lonely, isn’t it? To miss someone who should be here?”

Jodi Stuber wasn’t looking for another horse for her struggling therapy ranch—let alone one like Solomon. After losing his herd, he was solitary and sad, spending his days standing near the plastic deer in his yard for company. No stranger herself to loss and heartache, Jodi knew she had to give Solomon a home.

The road to recovery wouldn’t be easy. As Solomon struggled to fit in with his new herd and Jodi continued to navigate her own grief, the two developed a deep bond. But just as Jodi and Solomon were both beginning to heal, an unthinkable tragedy struck the therapy ranch. And Solomon was about to teach Jodi the greatest lesson of all.

Written by Jennifer Marshall Bleakley, author of Joey: How a Blind Rescue Horse Helped Others Learn to See, Project Solomon is a powerful story of resilience, sacrifice, and love that reminds us all how much we matter—to each other and to God.

William Wilberforce: Take Up the Fight

Janet and Geoff Benge

“William wondered how anyone was supposed to battle slavery. After all, King George III and the Church of England both had large amounts of money invested in trade with the West Indies. And a large number of bishops sat in the House of Lords. William shook his head. This was a much bigger fight than he felt capable of taking on.”

For two hundred years, British slave ships plied the Middle Passage, taking African men, women, and children to their doom. Ending slavery in the mighty British Empire seemed like an impossible dream, but once William Wilberforce resolved to represent the abolitionists in Parliament, he would fight to the bitter end-for nearly half a century-to achieve that goal.

Together with a community of dynamic reformers, Wilberforce struggled to rid his nation of evil and to give dignity and freedom to all people-slave and slave trader, poor and powerful. His example continues to inspire others to use their gifts and influence to do good against the odds (1759-1833).

Cover "Sundar Singh: Footprints Over the Mountain" by Janet and Geoff Benge

Sundar Singh: Footprints Over the Mountain

Janet and Geoff Benge

“As Sundar preached the gospel to the crowd, the monastery guard marched forward and arrested him. Sundar was dragged to the edge of town and hurled to the bottom of an abandoned well. The air was putrid. Desperation and loneliness soon washed over him. Left to die, Sundar leaned against the side of the well and began to pray.”

Searching since boyhood for the way to God, Sundar Singh found truth in Jesus Christ. At sixteen, the former Sikh became a Christian sadhu, or holy man, and at great risk devoted his life to Christ. With bare feet and few possessions, Sundar crossed the precarious Himalayas between India and Tibet many times, sharing the gospel with Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs – even thieves.

As he traveled, Sundar constantly read the Bible, prayed, and meditated, confident that God was always with him, even in the face of death. Preaching in Asia, Europe, and as far away as America, this Indian saint impacted thousands with his quiet yet bold words and actions (1889-1929).

Cover "Thomas Edison: Inspiration and Hard Work" by Janet and Geoff Benge

Thomas Edison: Inspiration and Hard Work

Janet and Geoff Benge

“Questions. Questions. Questions. That was how Tom worked–always thinking, always asking questions, until he arrived at a deep understanding or insight that he could use to develop some new invention. As far back as he could remember, Tom had always been asking questions, even as a small boy back in Milan, Ohio.”

With only three months of formal education, Thomas Edison grew up to be one of the most successful inventors of all time. Applying scientific principles to practical use, he made scores of inventions and held over thirteen hundred patents, from improvements on the telegraph and phonograph to the development of the incandescent lamp and a whole system for distributing electricity.

Edison’s rise from humble beginnings and his unceasing struggle to overcome obstacles illustrate the spirit of America. His genius and investigative methods shaped the future and continue to influence new generations (1847-1931).

Cover "Theodore Roosevelt: An American Original" by Janet and Geoff Benge

Theodore Roosevelt: An American Original

Janet and Geoff Benge

“Bleeding, Teddy stood to address the crowd. “Friends, I should ask you to be as quiet as possible. I don’t know if you fully understand that I have been shot, but it takes more than that to kill a bull moose.” The crowd went silent at the revelation, and while getting weaker, Teddy delivered what might be his last speech.”

Determined to make a difference and with an insatiable curiosity, love of adventure, and hunger for justice, Theodore Roosevelt exemplified a life directed by principle and not by circumstance.

Overcoming severe asthma and a weak heart set young Teddy on a life course against the odds. Whether rooting out government and corporate corruption, leading the legendary Rough Riders in war, establishing wildlife refuges and national parks, ranching in the Badlands of Dakota, writing books, or exploring dangerous uncharted land, the twenty-sixth president of the United States embraced every challenge and made his life count (1858-1919).

Cover "Martin Luther's Commentary on Galatians" by Martin Luther

Martin Luther’s Commentary on Galatians

Martin Luther

Recognizing Paul’s words to the Galatians as crucial to understanding the truth of God’s saving grace, Martin Luther set out to examine this great work verse by verse, especially for those led astray by the teachings of false gospels. All of Luther’s writings, including this commentary, directly combat the direction of the Catholic church at the time that strove to portray salvation as a thing to be earned and then mediated through religious leaders. Luther also emphasises the importance and influence of the Bible as the sole authority on the Christian faith and on individual salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Luther’s commentary underlines the clarity and strength of Paul’s words and encourages Christians to grow in their faith and knowledge of Christ, letting God’s love be evident in their lives.

Cover "Ernest Shackleton: Going South" by Janet and Geoff Benge

Ernest Shackleton: Going South

Janet and Geoff Benge

In the gloom of the ship’s oil lights, Ernest saw that the blizzard had broken up the ice plain. Huge, jagged ice slabs jutted into the air around the Endurance, jostling and scraping together. Great drifts of windblown snow had piled up behind them. Alone in the polar darkness, on a ship coated and locked in ice, the explorers waited.

As adventurers from around the world raced to reach the South Pole and achieve other polar firsts in the early 1900s, outsider Ernest Shackleton and his motley expeditions would outshine even the British navy, becoming icons of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

Known for prizing loyalty, leadership, and skill without regard for rank or social class—and for bringing men back alive—Shackleton completed three death-defying Antarctic journeys. Called the Boss by his crew and Sir Ernest Henry Shackleton by the king, the Anglo-Irish explorer counted it all part of life’s grand adventure (1874–1922).

“What would make you come back?” the Chinese people asked. “What is so important that you would risk your life to tell us?” Jonathan eagerly explained to them what had brought him back to China, even after so many foreigners had been killed: the need to share the gospel.

As a poor Canadian farm boy, Jonathan Goforth had no idea that he would spend most of his life braving disaster, danger, and disease to share God’s love with the people of China. But when God led him to do just that, nothing, not even the violent Boxer Rebellion, would stop Jonathan and his family from answering God’s call.

Making their home in China, the Goforths opened their doors to as many as five thousand visitors a month, all of whom had heard the gospel message. Their nearly fifty years of service to a nation in need would leave behind a legacy of many thousands of Chinese Christians (1859-1936).

Frederick Douglass: The Right to Dignity

Janet and Geoff Benge

The vicious cycle of slavery ate away at Frederick’s soul, until eventually he gave up all hope of freedom. As a strong young slave, he had to always appear subservient to his cruel master. But Frederick knew he was at a breaking point. He knew that one day he was going to explode with uncontrolled anger. Then there would be no telling what he might do.

Born into slavery in Maryland, Frederick Douglass was separated from his mother during infancy, then taken from his grandparents at the age of six to serve at the “Great House” on the Wye Plantation in Maryland. He never imagined the cruelties he would witness or the indignities of his family being treated like cattle to be sold, divided, and scattered far and wide.

Escaping from slavery, Frederick Douglass became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in America, the greatest orator of his day, an influential newspaper publisher, writer, and statesman, and the most important African American of the nineteenth century (1818–1895).

Overcoming poverty and racism, George became a brilliant scientist and a gifted professor who dedicated his expertise to helping black farmers escape the devastating grip of poverty.

This was one of the best and worst days of her life as Betty watched her daughter’s little blonde head bobbing up and down in the backpack chair ahead of her. Betty was excited that finally, after so much prayer, effort, and sacrifice, they were headed to an Auca settlement.

Since she was young, Elisabeth Elliot had been intrigued by missionaries who gave up so much to tell others about God’s love. With a passion to translate the Bible into new languages, she followed God’s call to work among tribes in Ecuador, including the Waorani (Auca), who had killed her husband and four others.

Perhaps it would be from some tropical disease in Africa or from wounds he received in a brawl with another seaman. Now John was sure he knew. He was about to drown in the North Atlantic Ocean, gone with no trace.

John Newton’s life was in a downward spiral. Impressed into the Royal Navy, John clashed with his fellow seamen and even became a servant alongside slaves in West Africa. When he found himself on a sinking ship, he called out to God for help.

John began his conversion to Christianity while he captained a slave ship. Eventually he gave up his former life completely and became a minister with a deep passion for the gospel. A living witness to God’s ability to change hearts, John joined the movement to set slaves free and penned hymns of hope, such as “Amazing Grace,” sung by millions around the world today (1725–1807).

While studying to be a minister, John Flynn longed to apply his training to help people in practical ways. Soon he discovered that his mission field was inside his own country—the vast and dangerous outback, or Never Never, where life-and-death struggles were a constant reality.

A man bursting with ideas and energy, John strove endlessly to support isolated bushmen through innovations in radio and flight. Serving as superintendent of the Australian Inland Mission and moderator general of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, he established desperately needed medical facilities and helped found the Flying Doctor Service.

You’ll want to stand up for the honor of poor victimized Bob, but in the end, you’ll see that in the midst of darkness, the light shines brightest!

Cover "Florence Young: Mission Accomplished" by Janet & Geoff Benge

Florence Young: Mission Accomplished

Janet & Geoff Benge

A rip current overturned the whaleboat with eight Kanaka Christians aboard. Only three of the men could swim, and the others clung to the upturned boat. Sharks circled the three as they struggled to get to shore. The three survived, but the others could not be found. When Florence heard the news, she resolved to go on despite the dangers.

Once timid and unsure of her own salvation, New Zealander Florence Young rose to her calling and became a fearless and faithful witness for Jesus Christ. Eventually serving in the remote Solomon Islands and, for a season, in China during the deadly Boxer Rebellion, Florence began her service close to home.

This one woman’s mission to the Solomon Islanders, or Kanakas, working on her family’s Australian plantation soon expanded to their home islands. There, as Florence and others helped Kanaka believers reach out to villages steeped in cannibalism and revenge killings, thousands of people were transformed by the love of God (1856-1940).

Elizabeth Fry: Angel of Newgate

Janet & Geoff Benge

Betsy felt her heart lurch. Just over a mile from where she stood, women and children existed in conditions more deplorable than the slums she routinely visited. Why hadn’t she investigated this before? Without a second thought, she said, “Something must be done immediately for those poor, suffering children. I will go to them tomorrow.”

Exposed to the horrendous living conditions of women prisoners and their children, Elizabeth Fry pledged to improve the lives of society’s most desperate people-something no one else dared to do.

Telling doubters, “If I don’t, who will?” Betsy became one of England’s greatest reformers and one of the nineteenth century’s most beloved people. Guided by her Quaker values, she led efforts in education and literacy, prison reform, and-together with figures such as William Wilberforce and Thomas Fowell Buxton-the abolition of slavery. Elizabeth Fry insisted on justice and forever changed the way human beings treat one another (1780-1845).

Ike climbed into his staff car. War was hard and brutal. He consoled himself with the fact that he’d done everything to ensure the greatest gains for the Allies while costing the fewest lives. What had to be done, had to be done, and these men, Ike was sure, would live in his memory forever. They would always be the true heroes of the war.

Born in Denison, Texas, Dwight David Eisenhower grew up poor in Abilene, Kansas. After graduating from the US Military Academy at West Point, Ike entered army service, commanding tank training in WWI and afterward, serving in Central America, Europe, and the Philippines.

During WWII Ike directed US forces in Europe, eventually becoming supreme commander of Allied forces and leading the invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe.

David’s father stood beside the stone chimney and spoke to his son. “It’s time to grow up, lad,” he said. “Mr. Siler has hired you to go Virginia with him. He’s run ragged trying to keep the cattle with him, and he needs a young’un with strong legs and keep eyes to help him out. Better hitch the wagon and say your good-byes.”

Growing up in Greene County, Tennessee, Davy Crockett was educated through the toil of hard labor. Working as a farm hand and wagon driver, he learned about the people and the land of the West—and he was captivated. The untamed wilderness, the sound of wild animals, and the roar of the river would be his destiny.

One of America’s best-known folk heroes, Crockett served as a frontiersman, a scout, a soldier, and a politician in the U.S. Congress. He died defending the Alamo, a steadfast citizen and heroic leader to the very end (1786–1836).

David Bussau: Facing the World Head-on

Janet & Geoff Benge

David listened to what the others said and thought for a few moments. He didn’t often talk to the other boys about what he was thinking, but this time he opened his mouth and said, “I’m going to be a millionaire and retire by the time I’m forty!”

David Bussau grew up in New Zealand boys’ homes where expectations of the young men were grim. David shattered those expectations, emerging as an enterprising teenager running a rented hot dog stand. Numerous business ownerships and financial success followed, and with that success, a vision to provide natural disaster relief and aid to the poor in Australia, Indonesia, India, and beyond.

Today David’s work continues through Opportunity International, a worldwide aid organization that offers small business loans to help the poor start and grow their own businesses. Certain of his direction, this hero to the world’s poor is looking ahead, using business to advance the kingdom of God (1940- ).

C.T. Studd: No Retreat

Janet & Geoff Benge

C.T. and his companion were lost in the African jungle. All the warnings others had given the two missionaries rushed into C.T.’s mind. He had the uneasy sensation of being watched. C.T. shivered as he stared into the dense foliage surrounding him. He was exposed on all sides, clearly visible to anything or anyone concealed in the jungle.

Endowed with rare determination and a wry sense of humor, C.T. Studd unceasingly pursued a life devoted to God. A star English cricket player in his youth, C.T. did nothing halfway. When challenged by near tragedy and the words of an atheist, the wealthy young man became a missionary of extreme devotion.

Serving in China, India, and finally Central Africa, C.T. Studd was the first missionary to reach numerous tribes deep in the Congo. Together with the mission he founded, Worldwide Evangelization Crusade, this man who refused to retreat opened a way for Africans to hear the gospel for years to come (1860-1931).

Slowly the boat pushed us forward, away from certain shipwreck, and gained the upper hand in its struggle against the surging current. The victory did not spark spontaneous celebration; rather, we spent the next moments in a trembling recovery.

Kent, an American, and Josephine, an Australian, journeyed to an unfamiliar continent and set out to live on a riverboat deep in the jungle. With their four young children and ministry team, they served on the Purus River in the Amazon, bringing education, health care, and the love of God to remote communities. The result is an unforgettable story of sacrifice, adventure, and transformation.

Behind George were enemies; in front, a raging ice-packed river. Poling across had seemed his best chance, but now large blocks of ice slammed into his makeshift raft, twisting it off course. Just as George dug his pole in and pushed with all his might, a block of ice hit the raft–the raft slammed into the pole–and George was overboard.

On a dangerous mission for the British army, young Major Washington had no idea that one day he would lead an army of fellow colonials in a bitter battle for independence against Great Britain herself, the most powerful empire in the world.

In each new crisis, the young United States sought out George Washington. As commander in chief of the Continental Army, chairman of the Constitutional Convention, and first president, this indispensable American served the struggling nation when its survival and form hung in the balance (1732-1799).

Helen Roseveare: Mama Luka

When she arrived at a clinic, usually five hundred, sometimes a thousand people were there to greet her. Helen’s reputation as the unstoppable Mama Luka had gone before her – she could do more to heal a sick child or baby than all the witch doctors in the area combined. This was the work God had called her to pioneer, and that belief encouraged her.

Helen Roseveare served as a medical missionary in the Congo during one of the most chaotic periods in the nation’s history. Arriving in 1953, Helen felt God lay on her heart the task of training future nurses to provide desperately needed medical care in the Congo.

Helen worked tirelessly as a doctor in the villages and jungles, training medical workers and overseeing the building of hospitals. Gifted with an incredible amount of strength and energy, Helen yearned to see the Congo flourish. Even in the face of violence during the struggle for independence from Belgian colonial rule, Helen refused to give up (1925-2016).

Harriet Tubman: Freedombound

Janet & Geoff Benge

The pounding of horses’ hooves shattered the night’s silence. Harriet froze in the shadow of a tree and peered out into the darkness. She barely dared to breathe as three slave catchers came to a halt only a few feet from her hiding place. Had she escaped from danger so many times only to lose her hope of freedom now?

At age six the sharp bite of a whip taught Harriet Tubman what it meant to be a slave. The other slaves scoffed when Harriet resolved to escape north someday. Little did they know that this girl would one day lead hundreds of slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad.

Even huge rewards for her capture – dead or alive – did not stop Harriet from risking her life again and again in the fight for liberty as the nation spiraled into the Civil War. Whether running from slave hunters, advising generals, or improving conditions in war hospitals, remarkable Harriet Tubman would not be satisfied until every person could experience true freedom (1820?-1913).

“Unless God helps us, there is no hope,” Captain Morris yelled over the roar of the storm. Hudson Taylor had to agree. Indeed the Dumfries might sink this very day and he would never live to see the shores of China, a land whose people he was certain God had called him to.

Hudson survived his perilous maiden voyage to his beloved China. With his heart set in determined obedience to God, and trusting the provision of the One who had called him, Hudson overcame persecution and almost overwhelming personal losses to bring God’s truth to the “ripe harvest fields” of China.

Today, Hudson Taylor’s story continues to challenge and inspire believers young and old to carry the anchoring gospel message, regardless of personal trials or hardships, to those who are adrift and without hope (1832-1905).

At last, Orville was free, soaring above the sand dunes, wind in his face. Lying in the glider’s wing, he moved his hips in the control cradle and the craft began to turn as planned. But then something went wrong. The glider wanted to go into a spin, and as Orville struggled with the controls, it came to a standstill in midair.

When Orville Wright and his brother Wilbur set out to solve the problem of flight, they recognized that success would come with careful observation, perseverance, and ingenuity. From experiments in their Dayton, Ohio, bicycle shop to test flights over the beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, the amateur aviation enthusiasts risked their lives and worked tirelessly to solve the problems that had stumped the world’s best scientists.

Leaving Western culture and their German home far behind, Amiira Ann and her husband, Chris, responded to the prompting of God to move to one of the most thoroughly Muslim cultures on earth, Yemen. The 9/11 attacks in the United States created the dangerous backdrop for reaching out to their Yemeni hosts with the love of Christ.

With the approach of her fifteenth birthday, even the ranch boss, big brother Chad, can’t deny that his baby sister is better at ranch skills than some of his cowhands. When Andi announces that her quinceañera birthday wish is to join the upcoming cattle drive, her family is stunned. But after further discussion and multiple newspaper clippings about spirited women who balked at society’s expectations, even Mother agrees that the only way to get this cattle-drive notion out of Andi’s head is by letting her and her cousin Levi go along as Cook’s helpers.

Between late nights, dust, mosquitos, and an abrasive cowhand trying to win Andi’s attention, it is definitely not a holiday. Andi grimly determines she will stick it out.

With the heart of an explorer and the passion of an evangelist, David Livingstone mapped vast, unexplored areas of Africa, sharing the gospel with whomever he encountered.

Chief Blackfish handed Daniel a belt. “The beads represent three paths,” he said. “The red path is the warpath.

In search of open spaces and land to call his own, Daniel Boone fearlessly led a band of brave settlers into the bountiful Kentucky wilderness.

If the train is stopped, you will have to escape across country!”

Known during the Civil War as the “Angel of the Battlefield,” remarkable Clara Barton risked everything to save countless lives on the frontlines of battle.

It was completely dark. The only things visible now were the two small beacon fires on Pinta and the Niña. Christopher was glad the two fires calmed his frightened crew. They calmed him, too. Their glow reminded him that the Santa Maria was not alone on the vast, uncharted Ocean Sea. The three ships would sail together into the unknown.

Buoyant and determined, and having at last won the support of the king and queen of Spain, Christopher Columbus sailed west from Europe with three ships, confident he would reach the Indies by this new route and find the gold-laden civilization of the great khan.

After four risky expeditions in which he explored the Caribbean and landed in South America, Columbus died without acclaim, never knowing he had reached what would soon be known as the New World. While Columbus himself never realized the magnitude of his discoveries, his voyages across the Ocean Sea would soon be recognized as a major turning point in world history (1451-1506).

Help me bring them hope.”

When Charles Mulli was a child, his family repeatedly abandoned him, and he lived in fear of his abusive, alcoholic father. With an extraordinary will, the young Kenyan struggled to feed and educate himself and, encountering hope in the gospel, found a reason to live and to forgive.

Later, as a multimillionaire and father of eight, the entrepreneur sold his businesses to devote himself to caring for street children throughout Kenya.

The mainsail cracked above them in the ferocious wind as a group of red-faced men descended on John. “You have brought a curse on us. Overboard with you,” one of the men yelled. A chorus of cheers went up. It was the last sound John heard before he was dumped over the side of the ship and engulfed by the dark, roiling ocean.”

Thrown overboard, enslaved by the Turks, captured by pirates, rescued by a princess–the story of Englishman John Smith would seem unbelievable were it fiction. Young John first sought adventure in Europe, traveling as far as Russia and distinguishing himself in the wars that raged across the Old World.

But John Smith’s real passion was for the New World, and in 1607 he sailed to North America with the men who would establish the first lasting British settlement-Jamestown.

Cameron Townsend: Good News in Every Language

Janet & Geoff Benge

The Cakchiquel man became indignant when Cam offered him a tract in Spanish. “Do you have one in Cakchiquel?” he asked. “There are none, I’m sorry,” replied Cam. “Well,” retorted the man, “if your God is so great, why can’t he speak my language?”

In one decisive moment, Cameron Townsend understood that God had called him to translate the Bible into the language of his Guatemalan friends. For Cam, the obstacles were small when compared to the growing reward of helping the diverse people of Guatemala, Mexico, and Peru read God’s life-changing Word for themselves.

Benjamin Franklin: Live Wire

Janet & Geoff Benge

As Ben experimented, people peppered him with questions about electricity. Distracted, Ben was still holding the ends of two bare wires when the other ends touched the Leyden jars. A massive charge knocked him to the ground. When he clambered to his feet, he had to admit that his guests appeared to have enjoyed watching him get electrocuted.”

Benjamin Franklin’s life never lacked excitement and intrigue. As a printer, writer, scientist, inventor, and American statesman, this spirited Philadelphia resident continually sought to improve himself and the world he lived in.

A key founding father, Franklin was the only man to sign all five of the most important documents upon which the United States was built. He also served the colonies and young nation in England and France, where he was greatly admired and regarded as a genius. Today Benjamin Franklin’s wisdom and influence still reverberate through literature, science, politics, and society (1706-1790).

Corrie ten Boom

Janet and Geoff Benge

The harsh lights stung Corrie’s blackened eyes as she entered the Gestapo-controlled police station in Haarlem. How true her elderly father’s words had been that quiet evening before Hitler’s madness descended on Holland: “Germany will invade Holland. We will lose. God help all those in Holland who do not call on His name.”

Suddenly, Corrie’s ordered life was lost in the insanity of war. With bravery and compassion, her family and countless other Dutch citizens risked everything to extend God’s hand to those innocents marked for certain execution in a world gone mad.

Dan Baumann

(Note: Recommended for ages 14+. Runtime: 7 hours)

“It’s strange,” said one of the guards. “I stand by his cell sometimes, and I hear him praying for us! He’s doing all this for love? We know nothing about this God of love, but it sounds very right.”

God’s love is stronger than fear! This book chronicles Dan Baumann’s experience in Iran in 1997, when he was wrongfully accused of espionage and thrown into the most infamous high-security prison in Iran.

Bring Your Eyes and See

Steve and Marie Goode

(Note: Recommended for Ages 14+. Runtime: 9hrs)

Many people had warned us and said it was too dangerous to enter Afghanistan, but we knew that if we would not go into a country where we were recruiting people to serve, we had no right to recruit them…

Steve Goode and Marie Bentley, high-school sweethearts from Tennessee, couldn’t have imagined all they would see through multiple decades of service to the poor and oppressed. Never shying away from God’s call, they have served in refugee camps and war zones and lived through personal illnesses and struggles. As long-term leaders of Youth With A Mission’s mercy ministries and efforts against human trafficking in Southeast Asia and beyond, Steve and Marie have brought healing and hope to thousands of people and continue to inspire others to do the same.

Betty Greene

Janet and Geoff Benge

Betty Greene coaxed her Grumman seaplane to two thousand feet… Suddenly, silence – total silence. The plane engine had stopped! Her passengers gasped, but Betty knew she must remain calm. They had only one slim chance for survival: the twisting jungle river below them.

As a young girl growing up on the shores of Lake Washington, Betty Greene had two passions: a love for Christ and a love of flying. As a young World War II WASP pilot, Betty dreamed of combining her two passions by using wings to serve God.

Betty’s dream became reality when she helped found the Mission Aviation Fellowship. Her faith-filled adventures and faithful service helped create what is today a global ministry that operates over eighty aircraft in nineteen countries (1920-1997).

Amy Carmichael stood on the deck of the steamer, waving good-bye once again to her old friend Robert Wilson. How could she have known she would never see him or the British Isles again? Amy was certain God had called her to India. Indeed! India would be her home for the rest of her life.

Her story and legacy are stunning reminders of the impact of one person who will fear God and nothing else. Driven by love and compassion, and sustained by faith and determination, Amy Carmichael defied the cruel barriers of India’s caste system.

Albert Schweitzer

Janet and Geoff Benge

Each morning patients gathered outside the clinic to see the doctor. So many suffered from the most painful medical conditions Albert could imagine. An old African man told him, “Among us everyone is ill. Our country devours her own children.” Albert found himself agreeing. Nothing could have prepared him for the conditions here.

Growing up on the French-German border, son of a Lutheran pastor, Albert Schweitzer adopted a peace-loving approach to life. He studied theology, music, and philosophy and wrote numerous books. At age thirty he felt called to study medicine and eventually became a doctor. Together with his wife, Hélène, he founded a missionary hospital in Lambaréné, Gabon.

Devoted to medical work in Africa, Albert was also a beacon of hope for a better future in war-ravaged Europe and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. His impact on medical missions continues to resonate today, inspiring compassionate care to the ends of the earth (1875-1965).

Alan Shepard

Janet and Geoff Benge

Alan Shepard gripped the abort handle and braced his feet against the capsule floor. Five, Four, Three… Don’t screw up, he muttered. Two, One, Zero, Liftoff. Alan felt himself rising into the sky. He could scarcely believe it. The boy who grew up with a passion for flying was off on the ultimate flight — to space!

Alan Shepard’s boyhood fascination with flight led him from constructing model airplanes in his grandfather’s basement to attaining national hero status in the race to space. Rooted in hard work and education, this pioneer’s dreams of flight came true as he became not only the first American launched into space but, later, one of the privileged few to walk on the moon.

When he wasn’t soaring above the clouds, astronaut Alan Shepard used his expertise to benefit others, raising money to fuel the dreams of science students and guiding NASA missions. The achievements of this high flyer — America’s “Lindbergh of Space” — inspire all who dare to live their dreams (1923-1998).

Adoniram Judson

Janet and Geoff Benge

There are no closed nations when men and women freely choose to lay down their lives for the sake of the gospel.

As America’s first foreign missionary, Adoniram Judson spent thirty-eight years working in Burma, then one of the most hostile countries on earth. Judson was ignored, mocked, beaten, and tortured, yet he never lost sight of his goal to translate the Bible into the Burmese language. Today, over 150 years after his death, his translation remains the only translation of the Bible into Burmese (1788-1850).

Abraham Lincoln

Janet and Geoff Benge

From the flag-draped presidential box, Abraham Lincoln watched the popular comedy on stage at the Ford theater. As he laughed at a funny line—Bang! A single shot rang out from a small derringer, the sound barely audible over the laughter of the crowd. Abe slumped forward, blood running from behind his left ear.

When President Lincoln died the next morning, the United States mourned as it had never mourned before. An assassin had killed the man who had led Americans through the bloody turmoil of the Civil War with an unswerving commitment to rebuilding a strong and united country.

Abe Lincoln had never set his sights on becoming president; after all, he’d grown up in a log cabin on the frontier and had hardly any formal schooling. But as the question of slavery threatened to destroy the United States, this self-taught lawyer with a sharp mind and passion for justice found himself at the center of the greatest debate the nation had ever faced (1809-1865).

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Janet and Geoff Benge

Laura stared at the black cloud blotting out the sun. The cloud was unlike anything she had ever seen. As it got closer, it made a strange noise, like hail pelting the ground. Suddenly the sky began to rain grasshoppers. The bugs clung to Laura’s hair and clothes and peered at her with bulging eyes. Soon they began to destroy Pa’s crop.

From the big woods of Wisconsin to the Indian country of the Great Plains, new adventures and landscapes filled the rich childhood of Laura Ingalls Wilder. On a frontier steeped in both danger and great possibility, Laura would grow up to witness firsthand the rapid transformation of the West as pioneers and covered wagons gave way to farms, towns, and railroads.

A pioneer, teacher, farmer’s wife, and storyteller, Laura Ingalls Wilder experienced one of the most exciting times in American history – history that this gifted writer brought to life for millions and preserved for generations to come (1867-1957).

Imagination must play a part in making the story of a wild animal complete, especially that of such an intensely shy and crafty creature as a fox; but nothing is included here which does not fall within the actual powers of the swift and wily red fox of today. Indeed there are numbers of them very much like Red Ben. Parts of his story are written in the snows of many woodlands besides Oak Ridge, and adventures such as his are still happening in the quiet of moonlit nights.
