"Slowly by slowly an egg will walk." - Ethiopian Proverb Growing up in a small Mississippi town Patrick dreamed of being a missionary to some exotic far away place. Through a series of disappointments, illness and heartbreak he was compelled to follow a narrow path. This would-be adventurer was being called to die to himself and live in Christ. This book is the story of the death of a dream and the birth of a vision that would become a new ministry born in suffering, carried out in simplicity and grounded in ancient roots. In a day of innovation and strategy this missionary implores us to rethink what it means to be a disciple of Christ, and calls to those who will join in a journey that takes place one step at the time. "Conformity to the image of Christ is not a prayer for a moment; rather it is a lifetime of faith and obedience that happens slowly by slowly." - Patrick S. Beard "Patrick Beard is an emissary for the missionary heart of the Gospel. He combines a passion for discipleship with great creativity and vision to impact the unreached of this world. I am happy to endorse his endeavors with Indigenous Outreach." - Robin Mark, Worship Leader and recording artist from Belfast, Northern Ireland. Born and raised in Mississippi, Patrick S. Beard is the founder and director of Indigenous Outreach International. He and his wife Lana have served as missionaries in New York and Ethiopia. They currently live in Jackson, Tennessee with their five daughters, Anna-Margaret, Joy, Lauren, Kristin and Emma.
