User Review  - Landon Blackham - Goodreads

I decided to start reading this book because I thought it would be good information to know as a future missionary in the mission field but .. It is just such a big book! Yes, the information is eye-opening and very in depth, but is something that I'm not terribly interested in. Read full review
