This is a story about a man who had achieved success, but wasn’t content. Ted had a vision for the world, a vision for all people to have an opportunity to learn about Jesus. Ted reasoned, "Why should some hear the life-giving message many times before some had the chance to hear it once?"
Ted and his wife, Peggy, applied to become missionaries, but were declined. They were too old, had too many kids, and did not have the right education. All avenues for personal involvement in world evangelization seemed closed, so the Fletchers founded their own organization. Drawing on Ted’s experience as a Marine and as a corporate executive, they stepped out in faith to send others to places in the world where missionaries were not welcome. Despite the odds, the mission grew beyond any of their expectations.
This updated edition of When God Comes Calling includes two new chapters by Pioneers’ cofounder, Peggy Fletcher, who writes about the growth of the mission among the unreached since the first edition was published in 2001 and since Ted’s homegoing in 2003.
- Captivating, convicting, inspiring
Great book challenging men and women to follow God when he "comes calling" through the beautiful example of Ted and Peggy Fletcher. The book provided many encouraging examples of how God is moving in the nations and continues to complete the great commission through His global church.
- If you don't want to be challenged, stay away
An incredible story of how an ordinary man believed God for big things. Between him being in the army and being confronted by God to the establishment of one of the biggest sending agencies today, God has received much glory from this story.
