A Dust Pan for Jesus
This is just one of my favorite stories in Missionary Stories
with the Millers that I wanted to do a review on. There are so
many wonderful stories in Missionary Stories with the Millers.
I picked this story because I was touching by his sincerity in
wanting to follow Christ. There are many others that are touching
too, but this one is a happy story!
This story in a
nutshell is about a little boy (Tisese) in Africa, who truly wanted
to serve the Lord with his whole life no matter what it cost. He
later changed his name from Tisese
(the-animal-which-runs-through-the-woods) to Dust Pan. He said he
named himself that “because I want to be a dust pan, so that when I
go home I may carry out the dirt from lives of my father, my family,
and all my friends. I want to be a Dust Pan for Jesus!” And he did
tell his father about the Lord, which, I might add was one of the
most famous witch doctors in that part of Africa, and usually killed
more than six hundred people every year!
And the story
says much more things that Dust Pan did when he went with a
Missionary, Raymond Bush.
There are a few stories that are not age appropriate and might scare
young children. I recommend this book; however, I think that the
adults should read it before reading to young children. Some stories
can be edited to make them more age-appropriate. Some stories,
however, are better left to more mature readers.
I hope that all the Christians in the world will strive to serve
Christ, like little Dust Pan did.
