This is the story of Calvin and Marian Olson during their thirty five years of service as missionaries to Bangladesh. Each of them kept diaries during that time. In addition, there were forty years of newsletter copies and thirty years of personal letters sent to Calvin’s parents. Using these resources, this book tells the whole story. You will read of suffering, humor, adventure, regrets and triumphs.
Wherever I go in the world, people will often ask, “Do you know the Olson’s?” the impact of their lives, goes far beyond the borders of India and Bangladesh. I recommend this book to you. You are about to take a wonderful journey into the lives of tow of God’s choice servants. I have been blessed to have them as friends and mentors. May God speak also to your heart as you read their adventures. – Jerry L. Parsley, Assemblies of God Regional Director for Eurasia
It is an honor for me to recommend this book of the life and ministry of Calvin and Marian Olson. I speak on behalf of hundreds of missionary colleagues and national leaders who have been eternally blessed and encouraged by this couple. This book is Marian’s gift, not only to Calvin, but to all of us how share their passion for missions. It is my prayer that the generations to come will be blessed by the testimony of this marvelous missionary couple. – David Grant, Southern Asia Area Director, Assemblies of God World Missions
