Count It All Joy - The Biography of Joy Ridderhof

Also published as Capturing Voices

By Phyllis Thompson

This is an incredible, true story of a lady who realised that she wouldn't be able to change the world that she had a heart for, on her own. It's a very "down to earth" biography, outlining the struggles that many people are faced with when looking to the Lord for guidance.

Joy had a sense of urgency regarding people who had never heard a voice telling them about Jesus Christ. So the story unwinds with lots of adventure and heart-stopping moments. It is also a testimony to the love, care and provision of God and demonstrates the power of prayer.

GRN has enabled over 6000 ethnic groups to be reached with the Gospel of Christ, and it all began with one lady's desire to serve the Lord and save the lost.
