These Strange Stones



Lisuland.  J.O. Fraser and Isobel Kuhn told us of it, but what is it like now, 100 years later?  Did the Lisu church survive?  This amazing, true story will transport you to 21st century Lisuland, and move you to pray for it's revival!     
While working among the Buyi [Bouyei] people, in southern China, we read J.O. Fraser's story, "Behind the Ranges".  We were astounded at the similarities between his situation and struggles in Lisuland, a century ago, and our life in "Buyiland", so we bought copies of the book to send to praying friends.  We never dreamed that God would soon move us to Lisuland,  and keep us there for ten years!

Jordyn the Ohnyx of Hope

Jordyn is fifteen years old when the city she lives in is attacked by enemy forces and her best friend, David, is killed by a bomb. Overcome by grief, she doesn't even speak to her rescuer, who's no ordinary soldier. Only when a unique young boy named Arin speaks to her is her voice heard again. She’s just become comfortable in a new city…

About the author:
Christie Taylor was raised in a small town in northern Canada.   While studying nursing in Edmonton she met and, eventually, married David Lietz.  They moved to China and have worked and raised a family there, mostly in remote locations where foreigners are rarely seen, sharing a life that neither of them could have imagined.  
{from the back cover}

“One morning after breakfast, the kids came running in
and said, “Mom, there’s a crazy lady out there!” They
were right, there was. She was young – maybe in her
early twenties – and quite pretty, except for her matted
hair and filthy face and clothes. She was perched on a
couple of cinder blocks, watching the children with
evident interest, interspersed with loud, perturbed
streams of gibberish aimed at an invisible audience.
What might she do? Was it safe to let the kids play out
there? .....”

This is a true story, and the realities of life in the developing world (especially regarding childbirth) are perhaps inappropriate for younger children, therefore the age rating for this book is set to 14.  Parents are aware of the maturity level of their own children, and, at their own discretion, may allow younger children to read this, or read it to them.  After all, even the Bible has scenes and situations which are inappropriate for younger children.  

This free sample edition contains the first four chapters of the book.
